PORTLAND, Ore. - In the second of our GNAC Football Video Previews profiling the conference's five programs, we feature the Humboldt State Lumberjacks.

Thanks to the dynamic offensive quartet of Ja’Quan Gardner, Robert Webber, Chase Krivashei and Alex Cappa, Humboldt State was one of the top offenses in Division II in 2017. The Lumberjacks led the GNAC and was ninth in Division II in total offense at 488.3 yards per game. The team’s 45.1 points per game was fourth nationally and their 315.5 passing yards per game was ninth. Humboldt State finished 8-2 overall and 6-2 in GNAC play, with both losses coming to Central Washington.

Despite the losses of the four offensive stalwarts, Humboldt State will look to finish strong with a young lineup. The school announced in July that it will discontinue its intercollegiate football program following the 2018 season.

Humboldt State’s most experienced players come on defense and special teams. Senior kicker Jose Morales earned First Team All-GNAC for his work on both field goals and point-after attempts. He made 5 of 8 field goals and 58 of 60 point-after attempts. Senior linebacker Curtis Williams earned Honorable Mention All-GNAC honors after finishing with 43 tackles, six for loss and three sacks. Junior running back Isaiah Hall leads the offensive returners after carrying 48 times for 245 yards and three touchdowns in 2017.
