Key Stats: 2016
+14 TO Margin
29 sacks made on defense
17 INT’s

2017 Offensive Outlook: With the loss of QB Kenny Boyer (1,000 passer and 1,500 yard rusher) we will need to find another playmaker. Brenden Cregger and Breven Derk should step in to that role. Losing 4 Offensive Lineman will be a gigantic void to fill but if our OL gels and does a good job, we should field a competitive team.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We made a vast improvement last year in our ability to tackle and we did a great job of creating turnovers. We need to continue to improve in those areas. We played a lot of guys on defense other than our starters so we have a decent amount of experience coming back on this side of the ball. We just need to rally to the football and play disciplined, fundamental football.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We were awful on punt and punt return last year and so we really need to focus on those 2 areas. We have some potentially dangerous returners so as long as we do a good job blocking that should be a bright spot. We just need to have a solid special teams play and not have it cost us games.
