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

We have a great group of leaders in this senior class. We return a solid nucleus on both sides of the football, but must replace a few guys along the offensive line. The junior class has great potential, and it should be exciting to see them develop. We hope to be very competitive.Offensively, we must run the football and develop the skilled positions to aid the passing game.

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

To play smart, fast, disciplined, and physical football.

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?)

Putting our athletes in the best position for them to be successful.
