2018 Offensive Outlook: The offense will feature 4 year starters at QB, Terrance Derr, and RB, Brandon George. Expecting a big year from D1 Recruits RB Brandon George and TE Luke Painton. C Nico Myers will anchor the OL.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Strong up the middle with retiring starters as T (Nico Myers), LB (Brandon George), and FS (Luis Garcia). Garcia and George started as sophomores.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Jamin Smith was among the state leaders in points last year and returns as K. Smith is better as a punter, but doesn’t get to punt much in games. Jamin is be hard pressed to beat out Greg Schwenk as Greg as had a great offseason after suffering a late season injury in 2017.
