Key Stats: 1st year as HC, don’t have 2017 Team Stats

2018 Offensive Outlook: Replacing a QB, RB, and most of the Oline is touch, so finding replacements in those area will be a key. Most importantly, developing young, inexperienced OL. RB Ike Lucas returns along with WRs Stiely and Ziegmont.

2018 Defensive Outlook: We’re not big, so establishing speed on defense is a key. Getting to the ball and making the hit is what will be most important

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Establishing a kicker
Find returner for punt team and kick return team.

Ensure Special Teams is viewed as one of the 3 areas we need to win.
