Key Stats:

2017 Offensive Outlook: We have experience returning on our line and backfield, but inexperience at quarterback. We need consistency and balance on the offensive side to be successful.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We improved on defense as the 2016 season went on. The key this year will be to begin the season with a solid defense and do better statistically than we did last year.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We must replace our punter and improve our kick off game. We do return our return personnel.
