2018 Offensive Outlook: Offensive success will be based on how well we play on the line and in the run game. We have a lot of athletes at receiver, but that doesn’t matter if we can’t establish a run game and keep defenses guessing.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Defensively it’s the same, how we play in the trenches will determine the success of the overall defense. We have high expectations in the secondary as we return some very good players, so if we return to where we left in 2017, we will be in a great position this coming season.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Special teams was a bright spot and we return a very solid kicker who now has a year of experience. We also return a dynamic return man who has the ability to score anytime he touches the ball.
