— “The game is decided in the trenches and these eight will also be on the defensive line,” Klossner said.

Elliott Kerst will anchor the defensive side of the ball at the linebacker position.

“He has a great eye for finding the ball and a great leader for the team to follow.” Klossner said.

The coach also stressed the importance of the third unit on the field: special teams.

“We have worked very hard on our special teams as they are a third of the game and can gives us good field position both offensively and defensively,” he said. “We are excited to be able to put the ball through the uprights this year as Ian Gillis will be kicking for us, giving us that extra threat to score.”
