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

Offensively our production will lie solely on how our offensive line develops. We were hit hard by graduation up front and we will be young. Besides Bleich and Rukstalis everyone else will be new up front. Athletically we have a lot of options. Our QB returns as does All State ATH Sean Judge. We also have some new faces that can make big plays.

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

Defensively we have the potential to be good. I would say the strength of the unit is speed and athleticism. We have some decent size up front and our LB’s and DB’s can run.
