Key Stats:

2018 Offensive Outlook: “We’ll need balance,” says Mowrey. “I think one of the strengths of our offense over the past couple years is the fact that we’ve been efficient on the ground and through the air. Being one dimensional makes the defense able to focus on shutting down a specific aspect of the offense, so we need to be able to take advantage of what the defense is giving us.”

2018 Defensive Outlook: “The key is tackling and turnovers,” states coach Mowrey. “Our defense is predicated on the players knowing their assignments and being able to play fast and get to the football, and making a play once you get there. Tackling is always a point of emphasis in our defense, along with turnovers. We have to be able to make the plays on defense that change the momentum of a game.”
