OFFENSE

The Tigers will return six starters to their up-tempo offense, including quarterback Brunk Gray (6-1, 170, Sr.). Last season Gray racked up and impressive 2,702 yards and 25 touchdowns. Protecting their QB on the offensive line, look for Noah Cowan (6-2, 240, Jr.) and Blake Raglin (6-2, 210, Sr.) as the big guys up front. At wide receiver, Brody Ward (5-8, 160, Sr.) accumulated 123 yards last year and will look to top that this season. Running back Julian Espinoza (5-10, 170, Jr.) will carry the rock on the ground. Beau Raymond is one of those guys that may have been undersized in junior high and not the strongest or fastest, but he has never been scared to work. He has worked his way into being the starting center. 

DEFENSE

Jacob Couch (5-10, 205, Jr.) is a dual threat for the Tigers, starting at halfback on offense and linebacker on defense. He started every game at linebacker/tight end as a sophomore where he accumulated 106 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles, and an interception. He is an extremely hard worker, loves football, and he will be one to watch over the next couple of seasons. Head coach Kenny Davis is joined by assistant coaches Dakota Evans, Ricky Ward, Mikkel Stump, Zach Cowan, Jimmy Ratcliff, Brock Thomas, BJ Bradbury, and JR Winton.
