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

The offensive line returns in 2016 with a lot of varsity experience. With a new head coach and new offensive scheme they will lean heavily on those big guys up front. There are many skilled positions to be filled including the QB spot. To be successful offensively the OL will need to own the LOS and the inexperienced skilled guys will need to step up early.

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

The defensive will return a few LBs and some DL. Mason Luff, a physical and intelligent ILB will be the leader on new a defensive scheme. In 2016, Mason and his teammates want to play physical-attack, but controlled defense. The mentality is a change up from last years aggressive 3-5 defense. To be successful defensively, Mason and his teammates will need to pursue to the ball as a unit and form tackle.

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?)

To be successful on special teams the team will need to cover all kicks, make the extra points, and work to score on returns.
