2016 Offensive outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on offense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)
We return four of the five starters on the offensive line, along with several quality backs and receivers. We need consistency at the quarterback position, and we need to finish drives in the end zone more often than we did in 2015.
2016 Defensive Outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on defense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)
We return many experienced players at all three levels on defense. The number of points yielded per game has decreased in each of the past two seasons, and we expect to continue that trend in 2016 with this experienced group.
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?)
P Zach Bradshaw earned all-league honors in 2015, while KR/PR Camerin Carroll had a breakout season returning kicks (including one for a TD in our season finale). K Dylan Molyneaux gained some experince with kickoffs last season, and may win the place-kicking job as well for 2016.
