Key Team Stats:

Rushed for 1761 yards
17 sacks recorded

2017 Outlook:

Offense: We must be able to generate points and be successful in our passing game. If we can open
up the box with the passing game our offense should be able to move the ball on the ground.

Defense: We must be able to limit 3rd down conversions, big plays and create
more turnovers. We do return a bunch of kids with defensive experience and if
we can come together and play our positions we should be improved on

Special Team: We should be good on special teams. Our punter is back with a 36.53 yards per punt average and he also kicked a 47 yard field goal.
