2021 Outlook: Coming off a Covid season that saw the program reach the playoffs for the first time in 8 years, expectations for the returning players is to continue the upward growth of the program. The team expects to make a return trip to the playoffs this year with senior leadership and picking up key contributions from underclassmen.

Offense: The keys to our success this year will be on our QB Aidan DeFeo leading the team, minimizing turnovers, and letting our playmakers make plays.

Defense: We are looking for guys to step up and replace graduating seniors who contribute a lot to make the playoffs in 2020. Forcing turnovers and stopping the run will be the focal point.
