18-21 record

RETURNING STARTERS

THREE TO SEE

Zane Adams, defensive back

Led team in interceptions at cornerback, and likely special-teams ace

Ary’Eon Allen-Jack, wide receiver

Team loaded with sophomores, and he should make biggest impact

Joshua Saole-Favors, defensive back

Standout safety was team MVP as sophomore — and all-league pick

OUTLOOK

With only three seniors, the Bulldogs will likely take a step back this season as their underclassmen develop.

It would have been a senior quartet, but the offense saw its workhorse running back Arthur Tavilili leave in the offseason, joining the team at Auburn Riverside.

That certainly puts more responsibility on Saole-Favors, already the team’s top two-way player who will line up all over the field on offense, including at tailback.
