2020 Returning Player Stats:

Adam Howanitz (QB) – 5 games; 435 yds passing, 3TD/3Int; 128 rush yds / 3TD

Sean Mackinder (WR) – 5 Games; 12 rec/115 yds/1TD

Rylie Kilmer (RB) – 5 games; 232 rush yds / 4 TD

2021 Offensive Outlook: With our whole OL returning and most of our skill positions back, we should be able to move the football. We have to minimize turnovers and dumb mistakes.

2021 Defensive Outlook: We have a lot of returning starters back so I hope we can evolve the defense into what it should be, 11 guys flying to the ball creating chaos.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: We spend a lot of time on Special Teams so I expect us to have big play potential on PR & KR and with returning punter, Corey Bushta, he does a great job of putting teams in bad position offensively.
