2022 Offensive Outlook: “If we can get our O-Line up to speed we can have an explosive offense. We have one of the best backfields I have ever coached with 6 players that all run sub 4.7 40-yard dash times with great instincts. We will be breaking in a freshman at QB in Brody Rebuck but he is physically ready and our QB coach Logan Leiby will have him ready for the mental game as well. We have great speed from our WR position and all our guys have become much better route runners.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “This is the area where we return a lot of experience. We have a great combination of size and speed we just need to be, more physical.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “Our kicker has done a great job of improving his leg strength and has been really working on his mechanics. If we can give him opportunities I feel he can have a big season.”
