2017 Offensive Outlook:

1. We need to replace a four year starter at QB (Grant Stlotzfus)
2. We are explosive at the WR position (Barbon & Stead) so our passing game is critical to open the running game.
3. Our offensive line has to us the time to throw the ball down field and open some running lanes for our RB’s.
4. Control the ball, keep our opponents offensive units off the field.
5. 3 or 4 Explosive plays per game.
6. Consistency under pressure.

2017 Defensive Outlook:

1. Run defense at the point of attack. Keep opponents to less than 3 yards per carry.
2. Produce more turnovers.

2017 Special Teams Outlook:

1. We need to score a minimum of 5 TD’s on special teams.
2. Kick-off returns – starting field position beyond the 40 yard line.
3. Punt returns – 15 – 2o yard average per punt return.
