2015 Outlook: Offense should be much better in 2015 with 8 returning starters. McLaughlin has a strong arm and Nate Jones could have a big year. Key will be the offensive line which returns four starters from a year ago. Defensively LB Hoffman is a three year starter and a two year captain, we have good team speed. So. Kicker Kevin Sheehan could have a breakout year, Nate Jones is very dangerous in the return game.

Offensively we need to finish drives and give the defense a chance to keep us in the game. We need to play hard whistle to whistle and compete every down. One plus is a lot of young players received valuable playing time on Friday nights in 2014, we return 14 starters.

Offense: Spread

Defense: 3-4
