Whom every is under center the Redhawk offense will go through senior RB Nate Crosby and junior WR "Mr. Everything" Jordan Young. Crosby, who is headed to James Madison next season was named 1st Team UCHSF for the 2nd straight year after putting up 1451 yards and 9 TDs along with 250 receiving yards and 3 TDs. Junior WR Jordan Young has multiple Power-5 offers after leading Union Co. with 1010 receiving yards and 12 TDs on 52 receptions in 2022.

The RedHawks defense loses 3 of their top 4 tacklers in Elijah Shaw, Cread Simpson, and Kemari Laney They return plenty with Zion Lindsey, Yoel Deleon and Jayden Olden return will make up for that. Deleon led the Redhawks with 6 sacks in 2022. Junior DB Jordan Young is a ball hawk in the defensive backfield after grabbing 8 interceptions in 2022, he has 11 career interceptions in just 2 seasons. The Redhawk defense can put him anywhere and he is a ball hawk. Young and Lindsey are both UCHSF Defensive POY Candidates. The RedHawks kicking game will need to be replaced after the graduation of both Junior Araujo & Creed Simpson. If they can't find a suitable replacement, they will just go for 2 and with the offensive power they have that should not be a problem. The RedHawks open the 2023 season hosting Central Davidson on Aug. 18th.
