2020 Outlook: Experience, especially in key spots on offense will be huge coming off a productive 2019 season. Depth is also very high, good roster size again this season. JV had a very good year and all the rising Juniors are primed to help fill in key spots on the team.

Offense: We will be returning the whole offensive line again this season, a starting QB & starting RB from 2019 + 3 WR that played a lot on offense in a starting rotation last season… We feel very good about the depth in the Offensive Skill positions…

Defense: Defense has some key spots to replace from 2019, we have depth and we have choices – now we need to get them to develop quickly and get ready for the season…

Special TeamsAll the kicking duties last year were filled by Nick Garrido who still has 2 more years… We will really be able to maximize our depth on special teams where a lot of our role players offensively & defensively can get significant time to contribute to our team this season…
