Outlook: The Falcons have made the playoffs for 10 consecutive seasons, and should contend again in the tough Southeast League.
The Falcons return their quarterback and three talented receivers, so they should be able to move the ball.
Braeden Wilson was a first-team All-Southeast pick at tight end after leading the Falcons with 43 catches for 587 yards and seven TDs. Blakely, who has committed to play at Air Force, had 27 catches for 395 yards and four scores, and Jordan Wilson added 24 catches for 204 yards and a TD.
Riggin was solid as a sophomore, completing 59.6 percent of his passes for 1,917 yards and 20 TDs. With three talented receivers, he should continue to grow.
Defensively, Monterde led the Falcons with 67 tackles. Blakely (54 tackles, three interceptions) and Jordan Wilson (30 tackles, two interceptions) will lead the secondary. Blakely was a second-team All-Southeast pick at both receiver and safety.
