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 our top 4 scorers back from last year (non-kickers) and 3 of our starting lineman. We need to find out who our starting QB and 2 new lineman will be and go from there. With Gibson and Simpson, we have 2 RBs returning with a lot of experience and ability. Also, Stone Scarcelle will line up at WR, RB, and QB and Quinn McKenna has the ability to line up at WR, also. With those 4 returners and some newcomers, we have the versatility to do a lot of neat things.

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

We have a lot of experience in the back of our defense with Sharkey and Cassidy returning (and Scarcelle played a lot). We need to find at least one corner. We are expecting Yanulevich and Albert to have excellent years at LB, but we’ll need to find another and may have to shuffle who plays where. Poet and Romano return up front. The guys that end up playing at the other 2 spots on the defensive line will play a big role in how successful we will be defensively.

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?)

David Giangiulio did a great job as a sophomore long snapper last year. Stone Scarcelle returns for his 4th year as our punter. We are hoping that Erick Rodriguez can be our K this year.
