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

Replacing 4 year QB starter Jeff Martin and LL Section 3 All Stars Andrew Olson and Dylan Stoops as well as 4 lineman will be a tall order. However, having Kyle Knight back from injury and having Tyler Horst back in the backfield is going to help a lot. The key to retuning a strong offense is finding lineman ready to fill in up front.

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

Remaining injury free and fining replacements along the DL will be key to having success on Defense. With so many question marks on offense it is critical that the defense improve and keep opponents from lighting up the scoreboard.

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?)

Elco must improve in the kicking game, it was a rough year on special teams last year. Replacing return man Travis Zimmerman will also be crucial.
