Key Stats: Graduated 13 seniors who had been starters for multiple years. However due to injuries last year many of the returning players received playing time including the playoff loss to Wilmington.

2018 Offensive Outlook: Keys to the offense this year will be balance, limiting turnovers, and offensive line play. Our strength is our qb and running backs, there were some big holes left at WR that need to be filled.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Keys to this years defense is to play fast and aggressive. We are bigger than we have been in the past but are going to need some guys to go out and be very aggressive.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Hunter is a solid kicker who just needs to perform like he has the past two seasons. Jd will be punting for us this year.
