Key Stats: 2017 Gave up less than 90 yards rushing per game. Gave up 9.4 points per season. Outscore opponent 621 to 141 over the course of 15 games.

2018 Offensive Outlook: For our offense to have a good year we will need to continue our focus that has made us successful in the past, blocking being unselfish and playing at a fast pace. If all 11 players on the offense can improve their blocking and fundamentals we will continue to grow offensively.

2018 Defensive Outlook: This year’s defense will need to find its own identity. To play at a high level it will still come down to giving great effort in our pursuit of the ball carrier. For this unit to lead our team it will attempt to be perfect in its alignment, effort and improve every week as tacklers.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: The special team will take on a look that matches our offense by playing fast and being unselfish. It will also look to equal the effort of the defense and be great tackling every week..
