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
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.
