2022 PREVIEW

The changes in the offensive scheme that the coaching staff made last year based on personnel, struggled at times. But with a year under their belt, the Sabers expect to be more efficient and successful on that side of the ball. If they can stay healthy up front, Susquehanna will be very competitive this season.

Colton Stone is back at quarterback and now has a good grasp on the spread offense.  He will have some experience in the backfield with running back Layne Fisk and fullback Kaleb Shimer returning. William Marcy and Sam Callahan will back up each position. J.J. Rosa is a returning starter at wide receiver and will be joined by Ryan Scott, Cooper Payne, and Parker Overbaugh. Nathan Garrehy is the new tight end.

The offensive line has potential but is inexperienced with only left guard Rykin Hobart a returning starter. Steve Loby is expected to take over at left tackle while Zach Staria is the new center. The right side of the line will also be new with guard Zach Norton and tackle John Michael Phillips.

Hobart and Kaleb Norton will man the defensive ends spot with Staria, Loby and Zach Norton playing on the inside up front. Callahan and Shimer are returning starters at linebacker with Marcy also in the mix.  Fisk returns at cornerback with Nathan Oropallo and Scott also expected to get playing time. Rosa returns at saftey.

Fisk is back to handle the kicking duties. Other special teams positions will be determined during camp.

QUOTE FROM COACH COOK: We lost a great deal of our offensive production due to graduation. We have some experience back in the backfield who we will lean on in the second year of our new offense. With low numbers and most players playing both ways we will have to stay healthy to make a run to the playoffs.
