2023 Offensive Outlook: We will be a very young offense to begin the season that must grow up quickly with the non-league schedule we have to begin our season. QB will be a key position to fill with the loss of All-State QB and 3-year starter Colin O’Sullivan. Kevin Etkin (Jr.), Jack (Soph), and Lawson Tyler (Fr.) all will get reps this pre-season.
The offensive line returns two starters both juniors in Holland and Roll and we will look to build off of their experience, especially in the early part of the season. The RB’s are a strength with experience returning in the form of Roberts and Paone. The receiving core returns just Kohlbrenner to lead a group of young receivers who have worked hard this off-season.
2023 Defensive Outlook: Defensively we will be equally as young while returning 4-year starter Chris Kohlbrenner on the back end and LB’s in the form of Roberts, Paone, and O’Sullivan. The entire defensive line and other positions were hit hard by graduation.
2023 Special Teams Outlook: Competition for both kicking jobs are underway with the loss of both to graduation.
