2021 Offensive Outlook: If we are going to be successful on offense we are going to need our offensive line to gel. We are replacing three starters on the offensive line. We will also have a new quarterback. We will need our more experienced players to step up early on, as the newcomers gain experience.

2021 Defensive Outlook: We are hoping to rotate several players on the d-line this year, which hopefully allows some of our bigger guys to stay fresh. We return most of our linebacking core and will lean on them to lead the defensive on the field. In the secondary, we will be looking at competitions at corners with quite a few younger players. If we can get a few young players to step up in key spots I think our defense should be fine this year.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: We are hoping to have a strong kicking game again this season. Our goal is to try and get some of our two-way players off of special teams this year. In order to do that we will need some young guys to step up. The last two seasons we have had strong special teams units, so there will definitely be an emphasis on making plays in that part of the game.
