Key Stats: *Answered Gleplay averaged over 9 yards a rush in 2016
*Desman Johnson, Jr. was 2-1 as a freshman starting QB

2017 Offensive Outlook: In order for us to have a successful year we have to be a mistake free team on offense that gets the ball into the hands of the playmakers. There is plenty of experience, skill, and depth at the skill positions and plenty of speed that other teams will definitely have to game plan for. Shane and Ron are two veteran offensive lineman that will be the anchor up front.

2017 Defensive Outlook: The defense is only returning two starters so there will be plenty of fresh faces that must step up and learn their responsibilities in a hurry. In order for us to be successful we must force opposing offenses into passing situations. We need to create turnovers on defense.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We must create big plays and positive field position for our offense.
