OFFENSE

The Bison are ready to pick up right where they left off from a very successful 2018 season. Head coach Dusty Yauk knows his team has what it takes, but after graduating some foundational players they will need others filling those roles. “New leadership will be the key,” Yauk said. “If the new leaders can pick up where those who graduated left, we should be able to compete for a district crown.” Andy Lizardo (6-0, 200, Sr.) is one who will be relied upon for leadership on the field. He plays a dynamic role as a tight end and fullback, rushing for 319 yards and five touchdowns last season. Running backs Brenden Bowles (6-3, 150, Jr.) and Colton Eskew (6-3, 160, Jr.) saw lots of action as sophomores last year. Bowles had 617 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, while Eskew had 410 yards and four touchdowns. These two will have to carry the load this year and their development will be key to the Bison offense.

DEFENSE

The defense has four starters back, including Lizardo and Eskew in linebacker positions. Together they accumulated 145 tackles last season. Also returning are Levi Kent (6-4, 215, Jr.) as a defensive end and Dalton Cosby (5-10, 215, Jr.) on the line. These four make up a solid base for the rest of the defense.
