2019 Review

The best part was seeing young kids step into positions that we needed and not back down. We struggled in the Wins column but grew in some key areas of our team foundation. Injuries in key areas, lack of depth and playing young athletes who should have not been playing Varsity football. As a program we still have ways to go but built a pretty good foundation for the future.

2020 Outlook

We have to be more productive on offense in order to keep our defense off the field. On defense we must reduce the amount of big plays by our opponents. Our strengths will be young hungry men who want to work hard to become successful! We have a good nucleus of players with experience and young men ready to fill holes that need filled. Extremely tough schedule! Our Goals and expectations are to improve everyday! We are trying to build young men who have Accountability, have Discipline, have Desire, and Expect to Win!
