Key Stats: Last year we produced 14 turnovers and had 6 sacks defensively. We are looking to create more pressure QB’s and force more turnovers in 2018.

Offensively last season we had 3 players with over 15 catches each. This year we look for those numbers to go up and yards after catch to go up.

2018 Offensive Outlook: This year, we must establish a run game. If we can run the ball, that will take the pressure off of the passing game. Moving the chains on 3rd down and making big plays early in games will help the offense get going.

2018 Defensive Outlook: We are excited about the returning players on the defensive side of the ball. This year, we must produce more turnovers and get the ball back for our offense. We must use our speed to get to the ball carrier. Our defense must find ways to pressure the QB and allow our athletes to make plays.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Using Special teams to win the field position battle will be key. Our Kick and Punter returns need to give us a spark. We are looking for special teams to be a phase of the game that teams really need to prepare for.
