Syracuse Football Breakout Candidates | debarker


Five Syracuse soccer players who could have breakout campaigns in the 2021 season.

WR Courtney Jackson: The slot receiver usually receives a lot of targets in the Syracuse offense. Jackson will fight with JaVontae Williams for the starting place. Whoever wins this battle will have a great chance to have a productive 2021 season. Jackson is high speed and could become a great playing option for the Orange.

WR JaVontae Williams: Williams is extremely athletic and can play inside or outside the receiver. Even if Williams does not earn a starting spot, he will be in the rotation and have opportunities to play. Don’t be surprised if he does some highlights this season.

TE Luke Benson: With Aaron Hackett gone, Benson is the light starter on the tight end. He’s an extremely gifted tight end, but that position wasn’t used much last season. With a weapon like Benson, could the Orange make tight ends a bigger part of the offense in 2021? If so, Benson could be in for a big season.

QB Garrett Shrader / Tommy DeVito: If Syracuse is to succeed in its 2021 campaign, it will need a better quarterback game. It could mean Tommy DeVito wins the job, the offensive line takes a big step forward and DeVito is having a solid season. It could also mean that Shrader wins the job and flaunts his dynamic abilities with his arms and legs. Either way, the two are candidates to star in 2021.

DB Ben LaBrosse: LaBrosse appeared in nine games as a true rookie last season. He was highly regarded by the coaching staff as a rookie and made an instant impression during training camp. A more important role is expected this season and he will have the opportunity to win a starting place.
