DAMON CAINE
Damon enters 2019 as the feature back in the Coyle offense. He’s a shifty back that has the
skillset that can change a game in 8-man football. He has the speed to get to the edge and
agility to make defenders miss in space. With sure hands, he’s also a threat to catch passes
out of the backfield.
