2017 Outlook: We will need to adapt to a new offensive system, an aggressive Defensive mindset & find reliable depth to help us on special teams. We want to be competitive every week & reach our fullest potential, as student-athletes and as young men.

Offense: We have solid skilled position players and many will contribute, biggest question marks are finding an Offensive Line & becoming comfortable with the new offense.

Defense: Our secondary will be strong & returning First Team All-League Inside Linebacker, Matt Stefurak, will be relied heavily on to again be a force defensively. Biggest question marks on defense will be the defensive front. Also, adapting to the aggressive mindset the coaching staff is trying to put in place.
