2016 Offensive outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on offense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)

Having a good balance with Pass & Run will lead to big weapons making big plays.

2016 Defensive Outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on defense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)

Getting the best 11 defenders on the field & developing depth!
Finding Mike LB to replace Gabe Sporn (3yr. starter)

2016 Special Teams Outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?)

First time in a long time to replace all league kicker & Punter.
Troy Stivason should fill PAT/K duties.
Kalen Keathley may very well be the best K/P Returner in the state!
