2018 Offensive Outlook: We will be more balanced on offense this year with some big time play makers on the outside with Bowers & Dalena. Depth at the RB positions will allow us to keep fresh legs in the game and a constant 3 way battle at quarteback will keep the pressure on whoever gets the nod to start the season.
2018 Defensive Outlook: Being a little more experienced will help on this side of the ball. We were in positions to make plays last year, but didn’t. Allignent, Assignment, and Tackling!!!
2018 Special Teams Outlook: We have a solid kicker in Plankenhorn and a good backup in Gorini who is coming of shoulder surgery. These guys had little opportunity last year to try kicks. We’re hoping for more opportunities this season!
