2017 Offensive Outlook: We return 7 starters with experience. Execution and preparation will be a key component in our weekly performance. The offense line will need to control the box to make a successful season.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We are a more experienced defense that preaches fast and physical football. Create turnovers, pursuit, and no explosive plays are being emphasized on a daily basis.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We lost our returner, kicker, and punter from last season. Some young guys are stepping up to fill the void at each position.
