Key Stats:

2017 Offensive Outlook: The offense will be balanced between the running game and the passing game running game, new wrinkles put in place after a successful off season will be key for the Saints run through the year. Look for the ball to be spread in the hands of Fairley, Watkins, Jackson, Carlo, Yates and Williams. Utilizing the play action pass to keep defenses honest will help with their balance. The Saints look to open some more eyes this season after coming off its first ever WPIAL playoff Win.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Look for the Saints to mix up coverage’s with a very talented defensive back field,mixing in blitzes and stunts up front will continue to bring the heat on opposing offenses.
