2021 Outlook: Defense: Tigers return 6 Defensive starters from a year ago. They will rely on being
aggressive and use their athleticism to give multiple looks. The back 8 have a ton of experience and look to
take another big step forward this year as Taylor Wikert returns for his 3rd consecutive year starting at safety.

Offense: The Tigers are returning 6 Starters on offense. There will be a lot of competition in the skill positions
as the Tigers have a plethora of experienced athletes. Justin Holmes returns as the QB, and he will look to
hook up again with big play guy Cade Christopher. There is some turnover at the offensive line position but
they feel they can be a good group that will continue to get better as the season progresses with the leadership
of Zach Fry and Ben Dunstan.

Special Teams: Tigers look to replace all kickers and punters this season
