2017 Offensive Outlook:  We have almost everyone back in the skill positions but we have to develop some young linemen upfront.  The quicker they pick up the schemes and varsity level speed, the better we will become.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We have a new Defensive Coordinator who has meshed well with the 9 returning starters.  Overall the athletes have picked up the new scheme and are ready for an improvement from 2016.

2017 Specials Teams Outlook: We have 2 experienced kickers back but we must become better on our coverage’s this year.  Our team found out last year how important Special Teams are in a football game.
