Highlight of last season was our lone district win versus Bartlett. We had a tough time those last four district games, we were really banged up and short handed with only 13 healthy guys for those final four.
We have a big junior class that got a lot of experience last year as sophomores. We have several guys that are going to be able to carry the ball to spread it around, some height at receiver, and a big athletic quarterback coming back in Jayce Todd.
Leadership is where we need to improve. As I mentioned, we were very young at the end of last year and we need those younger guys with experience as well as the seniors we have to step up and become leaders of this football team.
We are depending on our offensive line led by Storey and Ferrell to carry us to where we need to go. We are also looking for Jayce Todd to make a huge impact on the offense now that he is older and has gotten more experience at the QB position. Defensively, LB’s Gordon, Grimes, and Vazquez will lead the defense.
We are going to have a better year in 2021. We have almost everybody back from what we had at the end of the year and numbers are up. We’ll have around 40 guys come out for football this year, so that will benefit us greatly. We are expecting to be back in the playoffs this year after missing out the last two years.
