2018 Offensive Outlook: Return a very good backfield with Davis, Luckenbill, and Brish. We must do a better job of taking care of the football (11 fumbles in 2017). O-line will have a mix of experience and newcomers but I’m excited with our you talent up front.Our play action vertical passing game will help keep teams honest in the box.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Our front 7 in the 3-4 defense is filled with 3 and 4 year starters. You could argue that this collective group is the best we’ve ever had. We have a few holes to fill in our secondary but I like our newcomers in those areas.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: We are excited to have 5 long snappers and 4 kickers on our roster. I will be developing our punt game this summer.
