2020 Offensive Outlook:

— Only 2 Returning Starters
— Whole new Offensive Line we must find
— Must find a new QB
Overall we have a good group of players that have very little varsity experience, but have worked very hard to put themselves in the position to become a starter. So we are hoping to have a very competitive situation in a bunch of positions.
Our offensive success this year will be determined by how much our younger players mature and handle their new roles as starters.

2020 Defensive Outlook: We are hoping that our Defensive Unit carries us in the beginning of the year until our Offensive Unit matures. We have 7 starters back on Defense and a bunch of players that have had a lot of experience and should be able to step right into their starting roles.
— Our LB and DL depth should once again be a key part of our Defensive Unit
— We are returning 3 DB’s that started last year and are looking to develop depth and a 4th starter.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: We are returning everyone in the kicking game from last year. Not only are we returning our Kicker, Punter and Long Snapper, we are returning all of the backups too.
— So we have a lot of depth and this unit should be a big factor for us this year.
The 15 to 20 plays a game in the Kicking Game are the most important and they will help both our Offensive and Defensive Units that hopefully lead to wins.
