2022 Offensive Outlook: “We now have a bit more depth, but we are very young and inexperienced. The key is getting our timing with a very talented QB who came back to U.P. from the 8-man ball at Perkiomen School and our inexperienced WR’s. The line is a mix of veterans (Hill and Carducci) with some youth. Going to take time for all of this to mesh, but we are moving in the right direction.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “Losing defensive standout Brady Thompson will be a huge hole to fill, but we like what we see from Romanowski, his development will be very important to our overall success. Eruba will be a standout pass rusher and we will be very young in the secondary, but that youth has some ability which we hope to see develop over the course of the season.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “Watkins is a very talented kicker and will be a strength for our special teams. Punting chores are yet to be determined. Overall we expect a lot of young guys to fly around and get game speed experience on special teams.”
