OFFENSE

Seven returning starters will pepper the OBA offense this season led by versatile playmakers Traber Smithson (5-11, 185, Jr.) and Landon Crismas (5-10, 175, Sr.). Both players will likely see time at receiver and running back this year and combined for nearly 900 total yards last season and four touchdowns. Jett Cheatham (5-7, 155, So.) is another player who fits that versatile receiver/running back role and will be looking to improve on his 347 total yards he posted as a freshman.

Caleb Spann (5-8, 190, Jr.) will likely get some carries at running back this season after moving over from his guard spot last season. Will Price (5-10, 185, Sr.) should also see time at receiver this season.

At quarterback expect Baron Winter (6-2, 210, Jr.) to handle the snaps this season for the Trojans.

DEFENSE

On defense the Trojans will also return seven starters, including a vaunted group of linemen. At defensive tackle Garrett Enderud (6-1, 260, Sr.) and Morgan Meyer (5-10, 270, So,) will take care of the interior of the line. With Enderud and Meyer working on the inside that should free up defensive end Jacob Marshall (6-5, 230, Sr.) to make plenty of plays and improve upon his 26 total tackles and three tackles for loss from a year ago.

Working behind the OBA defensive line will be a group of linebackers led by Andrew Francis (5-9, 190, Jr.) who made 35 total tackles a year ago and forced two fumbles.

Finally, in the secondary expect Smithson to start at strong safety where he recorded 61 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and broke up three passes a year ago. Also in the defensive backfield will be Connor Colby (5-10, 175, So.) at free safety.
