Key Stats:

981 Passing Yds, 8 TD
2257 Rush Yds, 26 TD
Special Teams 4 TD
Defense Limited Offenses to Under 100 Yds per game Avg; and 15 Pts Per Game Avg

2017 Offensive Outlook: Offensively we must be able to score points while controlling the tempo of the game. We have big play makers that need to make big plays.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Our defense returns all our top tacklers from last season, so if we can stay healthy, we can be a force. Our ability to force turnovers and pressure offenses will be a big key this season.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We scored 4 TDs last year on special teams and forced teams into bad field position with our punting game. I expect the same this season.
