2017 Offensive Outlook: We need to do a better job in 2017 at protecting the ball. We lost 2 close games last season because of fumbles. We need to improve on the fundamentals and taking care of the little things, we have a talented, athletic, group returning on offense and would like to spread the field more, especially, in the passing game.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We return a nice nucleus of players on defense and will rely on a few new players to fill some gaps.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We lose our kicker and punter and plan to replace them both with young specialists. This is one area we need to really improve on from 2017.
