“We made the playoffs in 2018 and last season was undoubtedly a disappointment for all of us,” Kjar said, “With a new coaching staff to be announced soon, which we’re very excited about, and with some new faces on the roster that we’ll be announcing soon as well, we’re excited about the potential of the speed, power, rugby acumen and size for the Warriors going into 2020. And this 2020 schedule will be a new exciting challenge and an opportunity for this program to improve and showcase those skills.”
