2022 Offensive Outlook: “We have a very nice core on the offensive side of the ball. We have 4 very experienced offensive linemen with J’Ven Williams, Pacen Ziegler, Jack Gartner, and Cooper Young. Those guys along with Caleb Brewer, Issac Focht, and Thomas Weller can be a very solid group. We also have two experienced halfbacks in Drew Eisehenhower and Charlie McIntyre who will lead that group, along with Matthew Kramer getting his turn at FB. And finally, having your Qb back always makes things much easier. And having Ben Zechman back at qb is huge for us. He has grown up running the Wing-T, and he had an incredibly efficient season with 11 TD’s compared to 2 ints.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “Defensive side of the ball will be less experienced, but we got 2 back in the secondary with Drew and Charlie. The other 2 defensive back spots will come down to Andrew Delp, William Delp, Logan Hyde, and Ethan Brower. Matthew Kramer also returns as an OLB, and he showed what he can do last year. Specifically having a huge game in the state final. The key to success for this unit is how quickly the new starters pick up the scheme and responsibilities. With so many lopsided games last season, a lot of the potential starters got lots of varsity playing time. Looking for big seasons in the front seven from J’Ven Williams, Pacen Ziegler, Caleb Brewer, Drew Forrey, Collin Niedrowski, and Ryker Jones.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We have Ian Levering back as kicker and Ryker jones back as a punter so we feel good about both of those guys. We had a long-time starter at snapper in Tommy Grabowski we need to replace. It will come down to camp, but Evan Blickley is the leader at this point.”
