What are your expectations for your team this year?
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.

When your team is on offense, what are the keys to success?
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.

When your team is on defense, what are the keys to success?
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.
