Key Stats:

2017 Offensive Outlook: Keys will be the offensive line, we have to replace 4 starters. We also lost big play threat Justin neff so we will need to be much more balanced this year.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Defense should be our strength as we return 9 starters and 13 players that saw significant time last year. Our key will be to minimize the big plays and to get off the field on 3rd down.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Kicking should be a strength as we return all-heartland conference kicker Austyn Carson
