2017 Offensive Outlook: Under new Head Coach, Marc Persing, who will also serve as Offensive Coordinator/QB, the Dragons will feature a variety of formations and player personnel. The Dragons will look to make the switch from a zone blocking scheme to a gap/power scheme. The offensive line should be the strength of this unit as they will average approximately 250 pounds across the board and will be anchored by Sr. Lance Klinefelter. Not to be outdone, the skill positions will be anchored by 3 year starter, JR. WR- Dylan Farronato. The Dragons also return their starting QB, SO. Nick Shedleski, who will look to improve upon his Freshman campaign in which he threw for over 1200+ yards. Other Green Dragons that will be looked upon to have a successful year will be Coleman Witherite, Nate Gose, Max Moyers and Kam Schreffler.

2017 Defensive Outlook: The Green Dragon Defense, under Carm DeFrancesco, will make the switch to a 3-4 gap control defense. Led by Second Team All PHAC LB, Andrew Shedleski, the defense will be known for its speed all over the field. JR FS Dylan Farronato returns for his third season in the secondary and will be complimented by JR. Coleman Witherite and SR. Nate Gose. Other Green Dragons that will be looked upon to have a successful year will be JR. Drevin Doebler, SR. Jaylon Dodson,Sr. Blake Benfer, Jr. Austin Weisser, Jr. Charlie Blough, Jr. Dakotah Snyder and FR. Max Moyers

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Sr. Kicker Nate Liscum returns for his final season and will handle PAT and Kickoffs. Jr. Dylan Farronato will handle the punting duties
