2015 Outlook: Please let us know the keys about your team on offense, defense and special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?
Offense: Return all skill players with the exception of QB. Will be important for Schleicher to utilize the tool around him and be efficient at the quarterback position. The o-line has some experience, but we are looking for our senior leaders to take the next step and be a more physical group this year.
Defense: Defensive backfield is very experienced with all players returning. That should be a strength of the team this year. With the exception of Huber at LB a handful of players will be battling for the two remaining positions.
Special Team: Return kicker Peter Wright
