2017 Outlook: We have a great group of leaders in this senior class. We return a solid nucleus on both sides of the football, but must replace a few guys along the offensive line and a 1,800-yard rusher. The junior and sophomore classes have great potential, and it should be exciting to see them develop. We hope to be very competitive.
Offense:Run the football and development of skilled positions to aid the passing game.
Defense: To play smart, fast, disciplined, and physical.
Special Team: Put our athletes in the best position for them to be successful.
