OFFENSE

The big boys up front are the highlight of the Wolves attack. While there will be several new names and numbers at the skill positions, Shawnee has an offensive line capable of imposing its’ will. The unit is led by three-year starter Sergio Garcia (6-5, 310, Sr.) at left tackle. Garcia has the ability to play at the next level and serves as mentor to a trio of returning juniors in Josh Hair (6-1, 265, Jr.), Lucky Sheppard (6-5, 310, Jr.) and Koby Mitchell (5-11, 240, Jr.). Having this kind of size and experience up front should come in handy against a double tough district. Joe Maytubby (6-2, 195, Jr.) is the tight end. He’s physical enough to aid in the blocking efforts when needed and big enough to catch the football in traffic. Wide receiver Scout Cawvey (5-8, 190, Sr.) isn’t blessed with dominant size, however he excels at getting open and running after the catch. Cawvey caught 26 passes for more than 600 yards and turned roughly 1/3 of those receptions into touchdowns. He has 4.4 speed and can easily get behind the defense. Jarae Evans (6-0, 190, Jr.) steps in to replace a two-year starter at quarterback. Evans was adjusting well to the position over the summer and while untested, has loads of potential to run the offense. Running back will be by committee to begin the season with Demetrius Beavers (5-8, 150, Jr.) headlining the group. 

DEFENSE

The Wolves have a nice mix across the board of experienced defenders featuring Hudson Barkus (6-1, 190, Jr.) at linebacker. Barkus is a ferocious hitter that covers tons of ground. Brown could use some of his size on offense to play in front of Barkus at times and will rely on the experience of Terrance Shaw (6-0, 205, Jr.) on the defensive line. The secondary features several proven players. Beavers will be joined by Zane Christoper (6-0, 175, Jr.), Cyncere Spencer (5-10, 185, Jr.) and Austin Gonzales (5-10, 175, Sr.) in the back end. The Wolves took their lumps at times a year ago on the defensive side of the football and expect to see major improvement this fall. It should be a group with much more confidence with a year under their belt. While Shawnee is not blessed with an overly large group of seniors, there is enough talent and depth behind it to compete and challenge for a playoff spot.
