Key Stats: 3-1 record with Donte Rhodes as the starting Quarterback. Won 2 out of 3 to end the season and make playoffs as District 2 5A Champs.

2020 Offensive Outlook: The offense is in the hands of returning Quarterback Donte Rhodes. His decision making and play making abilities will be the catalyst for the 2020 Spartan Offense. We will look to seek more balance in our offense this year.

2020 Defensive Outlook: The defense will be led by returning starting LB Jonathan Stochla (135 tackles last season). His leadership will be a great benefit to a young and talented group of players around him. We will look to play fast and be extremely physical.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: A young and quick roster will to be explosive on Special Teams.
