2017 Offensive Outlook: Offensive keys: Being able to run the ball. We return 5 starting linemen and 2 Running Backs that rushed for over 2100 yards combined. Looking for consistency at the QB and WR positions to create a balanced offensive attack.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Defensive keys: Being able to stop our opponents run game. We return 4 out of 5 interior players including All-Area Inside Linebacker Noah Breidinger. We also need to limit our opponents having explosive plays.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Being able to replace All-State kicker/Punter Carson Landis will be our biggest challenge.
