PLAYERS TO WATCH : 

QB Billy Joiner - 

In pre season game 1 Billy threw for 2 TD’s in the first half before being pulled for the rest of the game to rest for regular season. He kept that fire going in the official regular season Week 1 vs the NY Falcons with 1 TD , and a few runs that would lead to first downs. Billy has been very exciting to watch thus far and will be looking forward to utilizing his deep receiving core.

RB Donte “Nunu” Montgomery

Montgomery has been a force in his first 2 games breaking long runs in both for over 30 yards. One thing that we have seen is consistency and being one of the hardest players to tackle on the field. He has been ready to have that breakout game and vs a team that just let up 200+ on the ground he is licking his chops to get his chance to show why he’s a player to be looked for.

DL Ricky Norris 

Returning to the team after having a breakout rookie season. He’s kicking this one off the way he ended the last with a bunch of QB hurries , QB sacks and Tackle for losses. Definitely helping pave way for the rest of the defense to make plays.

LB - Jayson Huff 

Returning to the team is former defensive player of the year , league leader in solo tackles MLB Jayson Huff. He took the last 2 seasons off and is back like he never left. As a leader of the defense he forces everyone to play up and to you their game with the energy he gives off.
