2018 Offensive Outlook: We will return the majority of our offensve line and have a great group of skilled players. Having to replace a three year starter at quarterback will be a challenge, but there are three solid players competing for the position. We will be successful if we can get our young talent to mature quickly. We need to be able to establish a running game to take some pressure off of our inexperienced quarterbacks.

2018 Defensive Outlook: We will be replacing the majority of our defense including our entire secondary. We need to be better stopping the run in order to be successful.
A good group of talented athletes will compete to fill those positions, however, we will be inexperienced.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Mike Coe returns as our punter, but we will need to replace our kicker. Special teams played a big role in our success last season and we expect it t play a big role again this year.
