Head Coach Matt Campbell has added three players who have joined his team this semester.

He also rushed for 428 yards and nine TDs, and added 65.5 tackles, five interceptions and 13 pass breakups on defense. As a junior, Woodside threw for 2,560 yards and 29 touchdowns, as well as rushing for 417 yards and seven TDs. A three-star recruit by, Woodside was the quarterback MVP at the Midwest Ultimate 100 Camp.
