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

We are going to try to get the ball to our athletes and let them make plays. We need to get better up front ever week in order to be successful. Staying injure free is a key for us

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

The keys to our team is our experience in the defensive backfield. We need our linebacker and DL to get better each game that is where we lack experience on the defensive side of ball.

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?)

Our Kickers and punter are back from last year and the all had a pretty good year. I think we can be pretty successful with the amount of athletes and speed we will have on special teams.
