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

Developing cohesion on the offensive line will be the key to a more consistent running game. We have some play-makers at the skills positions although Andre Chollette Jr. will be out for the season with a torn ACL that he suffered at a camp in June. Tamon Brown is a very capable and explosive Tailback but we will need to find depth at that spot and develop the young talent competing at Quarterback.

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

A solid nucleus is returning at linebacker and in the secondary. If we can improve along the front and eliminate mental errors that lead to big plays in 2015, we can become a consistent unit.

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?)

We have a few kids with strong legs competing at punter and kicker. The returners will be a strength. Overall, we are committed to becoming more fundamentally sound in all of our special teams units.
