2021 Offensive Outlook: Offensively we will be missing the multiple-year all-state players we have had in the past. The offense will be the same multiple set balanced attack with our deepest team in the skill position ever as a staff. Lots of inter-changeable athletes. the competition this off-season has been our most aggressive to date. A couple of options at the QB spot. we return 5 of our top 6 offensive linemen from a year ago. It’s imperative that this is the team’s strength.

2021 Defensive Outlook: 4-4 With several zone and man coverage looks from the secondary. Lots of depth in the front 8 box. Nearly All new guys in the secondary to start 2021. Harass the QB and fill the run lanes.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: Very talented returners with the bulk of the special teams unit back. Must find a punter and kicker.
