2020 Offensive Outlook: Replacing production on the offensive side of the ball will be critical after graduating many seniors that played key positions last year and broke multiple schools records. We will be looking for players to step up and fill those positions to help us have another successful year.

2020 Defensive Outlook: Much like the offense, the defense will also have to replace multiple positions that had very productive players there in 2019. We will be trying many guys in different spots to fit our needs for this upcoming season.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: Our kicker, punter, and long snapper have all graduated so there will be new faces at those positions. We will look to fill those positions with the best possible options.
