JACOB KISSLING, WR:  Kissling, a senior, caught 31 passes as a junior at wide receiver. “This season, he will be a critical two way player at wide receiver and defensive back” Giuliano said. “He is a high-energy kid that brings it in practice every day.”
OMAR ABDULLAH, RB: He rushed for 800 yards and six touchdowns in his junior year. “He is a versatile offensive player in the backfield and at wide receiver, and he will be pulling double duty at middle linebacker as well,” the coach said.
BRYAN HUCKLEBERRY, OL:  The senior returning lineman is, “an amazing kid: an Eagle Scout and our top academic performer,” the coach said. “He will be a second year starter at offensive tackle.”
NICK HILL, QB: Hill, a senior, threw for 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior. “After an amazing off season, he has become one of our most impactful players,” Giuliano said. “He is repping at quarterback, wide receiver and outside linebacker and will take our punting duties.”
JASON CHENG, QB/DB: “Jason started as a defensive back as a sophomore last year before a season-ending shoulder injury,” Giuliano said. “This season, he is competing to lead the offense at quarterback, is continuing his work in the defensive backfield and is an influential leader in our junior class.”
CAYDEN SEEBER, OL: Seeber, a senior, was  second team all-league at center last season and is working at guard this season. “He looks to be a leader on our line,” Giuliano said.
