In his second year at quarterback, Ben Winters (6-1, 170, Sr.) has become more comfortable in the offense and the Bruins are looking to explode this season, utilizing the spread system and giving Winters the opportunity to make plays with his arm. Winters has excellent presence in the pocket and good patience when waiting on routes to open up. Seth Long (6-0, 180, Sr.) is one of those receivers looking to get open for Winters. Long could become the go-to guy in the passing game. Shane Simpson (5-9, 165, Sr.) saw limited action last year, but is expected to make an impact in 2019. Caleb Perry (5-11, 180, Jr.) is another quick receiver with big-play capabilities. Laken Clowdus (5-8, 180, Sr.) starts at running back, where he carried the ball 66 times for 303 yards and averaged 4.5 yards per carry. The threats on offense are many for the Bruins, but not without guys like Curtis Fodor (6-5, 240, Sr.) getting the job done up front. “I am excited about seeing our team continue to progressively get better and build off the foundation that was laid during the 2018 season,” Sport said. Anderson Hurd has taken over as offensive line coach and Jason Munoz is the offensive coordinator. 


First-year defensive coordinator Tanner Koons takes over a Bruins unit with decent experience and athleticism. Braeden Winters (6-2, 215, Jr.) will start at one of the linebacker spots in Koons’ 3-4 alignment this season. Logan Hartman (6-0, 185, Sr.) will join Winters at linebacker, giving the Bruins two old-school ‘backers on defense. The secondary may be the strength of the defense with players like Taton Hopkins (6-2, 165, Sr.), Caden Davis (5-10, 185, Jr.) and Paxton Bradford (6-0, 180, Jr.). Davis notched 49 tackles last season. The secondary has worked hard in the offseason and should see the fruits of their labor come September. Tucker Hunt (5-10, 215, Sr.) will start on the defensive line for the Bruins as they look to add players to the starting lineup to fill in where graduation created holes. Hunt is capable of causing serious problems for opposing offensive units. The Bruin defense returns eight starters from the 2018 squad.
