2018 Offensive Outlook: Offensively the key to our season is to be able to run the ball effectively, and to throw the ball when we want to not only when we have to. We have a good nucleus of players returning, we must advance from where we finished last year, not regress at all.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Defensively we must be much better against the run. We have focused on tackling, and getting stronger in the offseason to accomplish this.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Special teams must be a weapon, not just a third phase of the game.
