The Noble Bears are looking to add onto the success of last season. Head coach Greg George is expecting more of the same this season. “It’s the same as always. Up tempo, spread the ball around to our playmakers,” said coach George. “We are excited! Looking forward to see a lot of young kids step up and become players. We only have seven seniors. We need to grow up fast.” Trevor Lorenz (6-3, 190, Jr.) played wide receiver last year but will move to quarterback this season. In 2019 Lorenz had 700 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Brandon Harper (5-8, 175, So.) will become the go-to receiver this season. Last year he accounted for 400 yards receiving as a freshman. Noah Standridge (6-0, 250, Sr.) starts at guard and Isaac Gifford (5-11, 230, Sr.) starts at tackle. Another offensive linemen to watch is Austin Tener (5-11, 240, Jr.). Coach George has assembled a coaching staff consisting of Tyler Solomon, Kyle Davidson, Ray Crawley, Keith Treat, Chris Jones, Scott Milette and Aaron Shocky.

“Look for us to come after people more,” said coach George. “Show a lot of looks out of the odd stack and force people to be one dimensional.” Sean Gillespie (5- 10, 200, Sr.) starts at linebacker where he recorded 138 tackles and forced four fumbles. Another linebacker to watch is Gabe Hudson (6-2, 185, Sr.). Hudson can also play safety. Hudson suffered an injury early in the season last year that sidelined him for most of the year. Bryson Crawley (5-10, 175, Jr.) and Seth Wall (6-2, 190, Sr.) are two more linebackers coach George will use in the odd stack defensive scheme. Crawley had 91 tackles in 2019 while Wall recorded 45. Lorenz will start at free safety and Harper will play one of the corner spots. Lorenz logged six interceptions and 75 tackles last season.
