Key Stats: The Red Tornadoes have averaged over 330 YPG offensively in each of the past 2 seasons.

2017 Offensive Outlook: The Red Tornado offense is based around a strong running game. They have averaged over 225 rushing YPG & 285 rushing YPG in 2015 & 2016. While the offense clearly run-first their passing game will continue to improve to create more balance in 2017. They return 9 starters and 3 other players that started at least 1 game last season.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Returning 10 starters and 3 other players that started at least 1 game in 2017, the Red Tornadoes will take a huge leap forward defensively. Their front 7 is made up of veteran players. With more experience in the secondary, as well as some strong new comers, their pass defense will improve tremendously.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Rosalino Mangepaine returns from a strong 2016 campaign. Always very accurate on extra points, his leg looks must stronger moving forward into 2017.
