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

New pieces to the Offensive puzzle this year. We will need consistent play from our OL to have sustained success. We will also need to reduce the amount penalties and turnovers from 2016.

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 a good amount of players on our D. We will need to play more violent in the run game than we have in years past. We have to create more turnovers and give the O more short fields.

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?)

Execution and Discipline are our two main keys for ST.
