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

New playmakers must develop on offense to share the workload and keep a balanced attack.

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

Linebackers with several years of experience must step up and lead a tougher 2016 Nazareth defense.

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?)

A more consistent kicking game needs to be established right from the start of the year on extra point and field goal.
