Key Stats: We lost our leading rusher and receiver.

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

We were forced in playing a lot of different lineman last year because of injuries. Most of those lineman return so that should be our strength. We return Lance Blass and Patrick Rother and will rely on both of them a lot more offensively next year. We need to develop an X receiver.

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

We have a few defensive backs new to the lineup this season with a lot of potential. How quickly they learn and progress will be the key to our defensive success.

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?)

We return both our starting all-league punter and kicker. Alex has had a great off-season in the weight room.
