Key Stats:

2018 Offensive Outlook: Our linemen will be the key to our success. We are getting back to the basics of blocking to control the line of scrimmage and maintain ball control. The offense will be a 40/60 mix of passing and running. Look for the ball to be spread in the hands of Stoup, McKenzie, Markiewicz, McCleester, Kovalchik and Kent.

2018 Defensive Outlook: We have several returning Letterman with a few holes to fill. We need to minimize the big plays and stay away from injuries.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Our key here is to get the underclassmen to step up and win the special teams. We need to improve from last year’s take aways and sacks.
