Key Stats:

2017 Offensive Outlook: The key for success this year will be our ability to run the football. We return three talented players who gained valuable experience last season. Sy Alli,
Dorian Jackson, and Damon Macklin will be depended upon to carry our offense as we look to groom a young quarterback. Raujee Clerfe’ had an outstanding season at the receiver position last year. He has great hands and possesses the ability to take the top off of the coverage.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Our success on the defensive side of the ball starts with defending the run. Due to early season injuries on our defensive line, we were forced to play several guys who lacked varsity experience last year. However, this should be a strength for us going into this season. Rahmir Moore looks to anchor the defensive line. We should also be strong on the back end as we return two very talented cornerbacks in Dorian Jackson and Damon Macklin. Raujee Clerfe’ and Steven Bermuduez bring plenty of productivity to the linebacking corps.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Kicker Sebastian Conway-Phillips provided the winning points for us in last year’s City League Title game. We are still in the process of identifying someone to fill his shoes. Return Specialist Dorian Jackson is an electric kick returner who is a threat to take one to the house whenever he touches the ball.
