OFFENSE 

First-year head coach Chalmer Wyatt takes over a program that went 1-9 last year, which was their worst showing in several years. Wyatt is excited to take over a program that he feels has tremendous potential. “New facilities, new staff; the Owls are up to something,” Wyatt said. Seneca Coleman (5-11, 170, Sr.) returns at running back, giving the Owls a gamebreaker in the backfield. Rivers Johnson (5-9, 160, Sr.) is a versatile player who figures into the overall success of the offense this season. Zach Cizek (6-2, 220, Jr.) starts on the offensive line and will anchor the unit. Cizek has next-level-type talent and should have a big year. The offense will operate out of the 2-back gun, utilizing the spread run attack with multiple schemes. The new offensive coordinator is Adam Castro. Kyle Walbrick will take over special teams. 

DEFENSE 

The Owls plan to operate out of the 4-2-5 defense, and leading the way is strong safety Jon Calvert (5-11, 170, Sr.). Calvert can help stop the run and cover the deep ball. Up front the Owls will showcase the talents of Issaiah Wolf (6-1, 210, Jr.) at defensive end. His ability to get up field and cause problems in the backfield will help guys like Calvert make plays on the back end. Darren Flucas (6-1, 220, Sr.) mirrors Wolf at end, giving the Owls two prolific pass rushers and edge setters. The new defense could help the Owls in preventing the big plays, but players in the trenches must control the line of scrimmage. The coaching staff season consists of Beau Beathard, Adam Castro, Carter Grigg, Rick Hatfield, Curtis Lorah, Brett Lorah and Cody Rowell.
