2017 Offensive Outlook: On offense, we will need to be more balanced than years past. Being able to keep the defense honest will open up holes both in the air and on the ground. We will be successful if we dominate the line of scrimmage.

2017 Defensive Outlook: On defense, we will need to fly to the ball and gang tackle. We will be successful if we trust the process and do our individual jobs.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We expect to treat special teams as a full 1/3 of a football game. Starting field position will be a key factor as well as capitalizing on scoring opportunities.
