2018 Offensive Outlook: The Royals return a strong deep Backfield with nearly 3,000 yards between 3 backs. There is a lot of depth at the running back position. Someone will need to step in at QB for jason Williams. Trevon Tate Danny Blue and Isaac Munson are battling it out .

Leading Receiver Caleb Houston returns along with Jonny Moore ,Blue and Foster as receiving threats.

Someone needs to emerge in a couple of positions along the OL to go along with C Crosbt ,TE Moore ,OL Allen Caggiano and Perez .

The Royals are extremely dangerous and have the ability to score on any given play in their Single Wing offense as noted with nearly 4600 rushing yards and 900 passing yards .

2018 Defensive Outlook: A strong core returns with plenty of experience led by Rayquan Crosby , Knight and Thompson up front. Foster at LB and a strong secondary with Blue Barry Thompson ,Goodwine and Tate.. Thurston ,Troop at LB along with Johnson and Wall at DB will need to step up big.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Tyler Viera returns to handle kicking duties along with possibly Foster punting. Viera is a solid kicker as evident in kicking 52 extra poins a season ago.

The Royals will boast a lot of speed in the return game
