Key Stats:

2018 Offensive Outlook: The keys to our offense this season will be to remain balanced. We’re excited to see the players in our offense after the experience they gained from last season, and also from the work put in throughout this off-season.

2018 Defensive Outlook: The keys to our defense this season will be to play smart, physical and tough. A good defense must play with attitude and also confidence, and that’s what our players must replicate in practices and games.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: The keys to our special teams play will be for the players to constantly ‘do their job’. We need to limit any big plays and take care of everything within our control. We need to use our speed and blocking abilities on our returns to set up the offense with good field position throughout each game.
