The ball-control style offense head coach Zach Gardner will utilize this season is steered by quarterback Gavin Payton (5-11, 170, Sr.). Payton has plenty of weapons in the single-back spread offense the Wardogs employ. Damien Burris (6-0, 165, Sr.) at inside receiver and Seth Swingle (5-8, 160, Sr.) at wide receiver bring speed and the ability to test the defensive backs deep. Gabe McCleary (5-10, 180, Sr.) starts at running back for the Wardogs, giving Gardner a solid option on the ground. Clay McCormick (6-1, 225, Jr.) and Jackson Satterwhite (6-3, 275, Sr.) anchor the offensive line. McCormick will start at center. Also look for Isaac Lacy (5-11, 170, Sr.) adding depth to the lineup at receiver. “We hope to compete week in and week out,” Gardner said. “We are still in the rebuilding process. Our kids have adapted well and are working hard.” Miami added David Gilstrap to the coaching staff as the running backs coach. 


Tanner Maple (5-10, 195, Sr.) and Matt Horn (5-10, 165, Sr.) operate at middle linebacker in the Wardogs’ 3-4 scheme. Josh Thornberry (6-0, 180, Jr.) and Carson Folks (5-7, 145, Jr.) are the outside linebackers. As a unit, these four linebackers are quick to the ball and rally to make plays. Trenton Spunaugle (6-1, 295, Jr.) and Keegan Kamumo (6-1, 210, So.) are two motivated defensive linemen the Wardogs need to pressure the quarterback and stuff the run. Christian Reavis (6-1, 160, So.) will start in the secondary and despite being a younger player, Reavis is solid at the position and will only improve with more games under his belt.
