2017 Outlook:

Offense: Cedar Cliff will have some explosive skill athletes in 2017. However, the Colts will need to replace their OL and QB from an offense that averaged almost 40 points per game.

Defense: Cedar Cliff graduates its entire defensive line from a unit that was stout against the run in 2016. The success for the Colts on defense largely depends on how quickly the young defensive line matures.
