2017 Defensive Outlook: Our defense returns numerous players who played a key role in 2016. To continue to be successful we need to master their assignments and play together as one unit.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Need to build off the success in kicking game of pinning opponents deep in the kick off, and consistently converting extra points. We will have to replace a 3 year starter at punter
