They are so ready to get the season started in downtown Dayton. Chaminade Julienne has something to prove after winning just three games a year ago. The Eagles are experienced with an electrifying offense that is ready to give foes fits.

The expectations are high for the next two seasons. “We had a heavy sophomore team in 2020. We are looking for those sophomores to be better as juniors,” head coach Marcus Colvin states.

A young offense averaged just 18.1 points per game, last fall. On the other side of the ball, the team allowed 31.6 points per contest. “The line play on offense and defense will need to grow. The skills positions have lots of talent,” Colvin says.

Chaminade Julienne has much to improve upon and there is every indication that will happen. It is just about the Eagles putting in the work to make it come to fruition. If they do, CJ will be a menace in their league and Region 12.

Kenyon Owens, Sr, WR/RS – One of the most dangerous players in the Gem City. Owens is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. As a junior, Owens amassed 1,170 all-purpose yards, had 33 receptions for 514 yards, averaged 29.2 yards per kickoff return, 11.6 yards per punt return, tallied 28 total tackles had an interception and found the end zone five times (three KRs, one PR, one rec), in eight games.

Owens has 108 receptions for 1,496 yards, 2,681 all-purpose yards and 15 touchdowns (nine rec, three KRs, two rush, one PR), in his career. He has an offer from Morehead State.

Luke Chandler, Sr, QB – A savvy veteran who has logged many snaps since his freshman year. Chandler was a Second Team All-GCL Co-eds selection as a junior. He has thrown for 1,886 yards and 12 touchdowns, in his career. We won’t be surprised if he doubles those numbers as a senior.

Brian Jones Jr., Jr, LB – Fared well in his first season as a starter. Jones Jr. registered 41 total tackles with an interception, in 2020. He was named Honorable Mention All-GCL Co-eds for the effort.

Sophomores RB Amare Lattimore and TE/LB Jackson Frasure will get every chance to break into the starting lineup. Jackson could be the Eagles go-to running back.
