Key Stats: UD graduated 20/22 starters and both kickers from last years District 1 AAAA Championship and state Final Four team.
2016 Offensive outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on offense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)
This years offense will be extremely inexperienced and competition for all positions will be fierce during preseason camp. How quickly this unit can determine its identity will be the key to success in 2016.
2016 Defensive Outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on defense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)
With only one returning starter and this athlete moving to a new position will mean 11 jobs will be up for grabs this season. This competition will hopefully not only lead to 11 starters, but provide depth during the 2016 season.
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?)
Too early to call the kicking duties, but 3 underclassmen are in the mix.
