2018 Offensive Outlook: We return a number of starters including QB Ryan Cassidy and 2nd All ChesMont WR Michael Gray (49 catches, 529 yards, 7tds) and a number of other players who gained significant experience last year. Andraos and Cooper return on the offensive line along side fellow Jr. Hugh Lemmon-Kishi, who missed the entire 2017 season. Cichanowsky and Marchant will share the load in the offensive backfield. We will need to have a balanced attack to be successful in 2018.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Michael Gray leads an experienced defensive backfield but will need to replace the front 7 from last years team. Learning a new defense, communicating and stopping the run will be keys for us to be successful.
