Key Stats:

2017 Offensive Outlook: Entering year 2 of our system, our offense needs to focus on execution this season. We need to as a unit, focus on fundamentals and not try and make a big play on every snap, take care of the little things, and control what we can control.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Our defense needs to be one unit. We need to make sure we understand each role in our schemes and not try to do to much. We need to play fast and physical.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Our special teams units need be a key piece in changing field position. We return all of our batteries in the kicking game and all of our return men, so we expect them to play key roles in helping us flip the field to our advantage.
