Noah Yeck Had 12 Receptions For 265 Yards & 6 Td’s In 2017

2018 Offensive Outlook: The Key To The Bulldogs 2018 Season How Well The Key Returning Skill Players Adapt To Coach Barley’s New Wing T Offense. Look Ofr Rosa To Be Able To Make Playes With His Legs Running The Ball As Well As Throwing It To Key Receivers In Yeck, And Pail. Ross Will Settle In As The Primary Running Back For The First Time In His Career But Look For Pail To Help Carry The Load.

2018 Defensive Outlook: The New Defesne Is Built Around 2 Time Top 22 All Conference Middle Linebacker Cody Ross, Who Also Has Senior Noah Henderson Returning To Play The Sam Linebacker Position. Boyer, And Lawrence Return On The Defensive Line, While Yeck, Pail, And Rosa Will Be Looked Upon To Solidify The Veteran Secondary. Overall This Unit Has Playmakers Spread Out On The Field But The Key Will Be Who Fills The Two Open Spots Along The Defensive Line And The Open Will Linebacker Spot.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: 1st Year Player Nick Dinardo Will Be Counted On To Take Over The Kicking And Punting Duties For The Freedom Bulldogs Who Over The Past Two Years Have Had To Kickers Named As First Year All Conference Players. Pailwill Return For His Third Year Returning Punts, And Kickoffs And Shows Great Speed And The Ability To Score On Any Opportunity.
