2018 Outlook: On Offense We need to be able to run the ball to help our pass game be effective, On defense we need to be able to defend the run better this year and contest more passes

Offense: We need to replace RB Kevin Francis and QB Shane Wolford. Jr. QB MacDonald needs to spread the ball around to WR Paone and Stead to compliment the ground game of Arhontakis, Kirby and Rossiter.

Defense: We need to reduce our points against per game

Special Team: We need to be fundamentally sound in the kicking game
