Union County Yellow Jackets
2020 Record: 4-2
Season Result: Missed playoffs
Head Coach: Brian Thompson (4th season)
Key players lost: Termaine Epps (DE/OLB), Ke’Avis Savage (RB), K.J. McCluney

Preview: As Brian Thompson enters his fourth season he has a senior-laden team. He’ll count on players like Brian Renwick at running back, who backed up the graduated Ka’Avis Savage last season. The offense also features many targets in the passing game like Desmond Herbert, Kevin hughes, Branson Cook, J.J. Thomas and Kristian Means for quarterback JaBryson Hunter, who’s a multi-talented performer himself. Hunter could see some time in the secondary alongside several of the WRs going both ways while Peyton Gregory leads up front on that side.
