Key Stats:

2018 Offensive Outlook: run and pass the ball. We want to manage the clock and put together positive drives that end with points on the board. We want to take care of the ball and not turn the ball over. We want to be efficient in all phases of our offense to be able to take advantage of anything the defense is giving up or be able to attack weaknesses we may see

2018 Defensive Outlook: On defense, we want to be an aggressive, disciplined unit. We want to play fast to the football and be a fundamentally sound unit that tackles well. We will be aggressive in our schemes on defense to create turnovers and put pressure on offenses we face. We want to not give up the big plays and win the turnover battle.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: On special teams, we want to win the field position battle and score points. We want to put our offense and defense in good field position every time. We will be disciplined in our assignments, aggressive in our schemes, not turning the ball over, as well as creating turnovers when we can.
