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

Senior Nate Jones returns as the leading rusher in league. We must be able to run the ball, control the clock and limit turnovers to be successful.

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

Strength of our defense is we run to the ball very well and we are extremely good tackling team. We must generate more turnovers this season. We made huge improvement in 2015 over 2014 season, the improvement must continue in 2016 for us to be successful.

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?)

Our kicking game has to help the defense with field position. We return a good kicker/punter in Kevin Sheehan who had an excellent year as a sophomore in 2015. Kevin has good range on field goals and is very consistent on extra points. Our return teams need to generate some points this season.
