Key Stats:

2018 Offensive Outlook: We lost 8 Offensive Starters but we return a lot of very talented underclassmen that played a lot in back-up roles last season. Also the return of Junior RB Cole Blubaugh from injuries last season will be big for us. He was on track to be our starting RB last season until injuries sidelined him. The keys are for our talented younger players to adjust to the speed of Varsity games quickly and to remain as injury free as possible. We also have to hope our offensive line gels quickly as we will be replacing 4 starters.

2018 Defensive Outlook: We lost 7 Defensive Starters but we have a lot of players returning that got valuable minutes on our Defense last season. We feel our Defense will be a strength for us this season. We should be very fast on Defense and have a lot of depth at every position.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Losing All-State Kicker/Punter Carter Raupach will be a big loss. We have a Sophomore Kicker (Brady Glessner) who is also a soccer player who will step into the Kicking role. He has been working hard and attending camps this summer.
