Key Stats: Returning 23 letter winners.

2017 Offensive outlook: 

The offensive keys for our success are to utilize key guys on offense. We need to make sure our offensive line learns the system.  We have many young guys playing in crucial spots.

2017 Defensive Outlook: 

The defensive keys for our success are to make sure we are able to be physical up front and control the line of scrimmage.  Our linebackers need to be able to flow to the ball and secondary play their coverage’s.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: 

We need to make sure we are able to use our special teams for giving us good field position during the game.
