What are your expectations for your team this year?
Our goal is always to complete for a state championship

SEASON OUTLOOK – Experience

OFFENSE – 9 starters return. This includes all 3 running backs- HB Gavin Garcia, FB Wes Barnes and HB Braeden Wisloski. Other key skill players returning are QB Liam Klebon and wide receivers Jake Rose and Jake Toczylousky. Up front we are looking at Carson Savitski & Chris Treshock returning at tackles along with Joe Quinton at guard. Gabe Leffler who rotated at guard last year will move to center and looks to be the starter there. Our right guard and tight end are the only replacements needed. The players currently projected as replacements are Brett Horton at guard and either Derek Berlitz or Ryan Kerstetter at tight end.

DEFENSE – Only 3 regular starters return on defense. They are Derek Berlitz (DE), Garrett Garcia (ILB) and Jake Rose (OLB). Savitski, Treshock and Austin Reeder will see time at DT. Possible replacements at defensive end are Quinton, Leffler or Logan Sharrow. We need to replace all 3 defensive backs. Main candidates are Braeden Wisloski, Connor Gallagher, Mike Yancoskie, Jake Toczylousky and Ashton Helwig. Top prospects at linebacker are Dominic Fetterolf (ILB) and Mike Zsido (OLB).

SPECIAL TEAMS – Sophomore Isaic Carter returns to assume the placekicking and punting duties. The combination of Garcia, Wisloski and Barnes should provide us with outstanding kick/punt returners.
