2018 Offensive Outlook: As our young players mature, we have many different athletes who are a threat to score on any play. The big questions are will we be able to maintain protection and be able to get the ball in the hands of these athletes.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Having only lost one starter, the defense looks to improve on last year’s performance. Improvement in linebacker play is a must.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Our kick off return team was responsible for scoring 5 TDs last year and in other cases gave us great field position. We expect that productivity to continue. We will need to see improvement from our cover teams, though.
