Key Stats: Stocker threw for over 2,000 yards last year, but has all new receivers. Lasota and Naylor gained yards in varsity games last year.
DL returns size and experience.

2017 Offensive Outlook: Stocker has got to have a great year and carry the passing game until the young receivers get some experience. Lean on the big and strong OL up front.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Almost entirely new cast in the secondary so the defensive line will need to dominate until other kids get experience.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Breaking in a new kicker this year from the soccer team.
