Overall, the team finished with a record of 5-4, down one game from last year’s 6-3.

“I felt the season was somewhat of a success, obviously it didn’t end the way I had hoped, but overall, I thought the team did a good job.  As for the program, I’d like to think that we are trending in the right direction,” said head coach Rashad West.

Coronavirus made this season more difficult than others. Safety precautions included temperature checks, masks, and frequent sanitizing of common surfaces.

Throughout the season, several players were contact traced and quarantined. It was frustrating for players to know it was out of their control and that it could happen to anyone at any time, causing many to miss practices and games.

“I feel as though we had a good run this season, it was a great senior year for me. I am grateful we were able to have two winning seasons after going 0-10 in my sophomore year,” said senior defensive back Travis Patten.
