2021 Offensive Outlook: Good experience last season at the QB and WR position coming back. We are young and hungry up front, the whole is working hard to make a name for themselves. As always we plan to control the game with the run but we excited about the speed and talent in the pass game.

2021 Defensive Outlook: Replacing 7 starters, we are excited about the young depth we have ready to step in and play. We plan to be fast and aggressive while being supported by what we feel is a strong secondary group.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: We are excited to have Christian Bush (kicker- 2 for 2 on FGs last year) and Jake Jaszcz (2 year starter at punter) returning. We have lots of upcoming skill players who should give us good energy and depth in the kicking game.
