2016 Outlook: Built a strong foundation for the program in 2015 with the first district football championship in school history. Looking to continue building the program to new heights in 2016. We have strong seniors with a lot of overall experience which will help us tremendously in 2016. Feel very good about our underclassmen and are looking for many of them to fill in the blanks on offense, defense and special teams.
Offense: We have to replace a record-setting QB and some key pieces on our OL. Overall we feel good about the skill kids we have returning and that we will be able to produce good numbers when we have the ball.
Defense: We have almost our whole defense returning and we played a bunch of guys who got experience last year. We will have a new DC and will attempt to utilize our speed and athleticism.
Special Teams: We have to replace all of our kickers and have some good young prospects working to fill in the holes we lost to graduation.
