Key Stats: QB Bubba Slogosky returns for his senior season having thrown for over 1200 yards passing and 8 TD’s. TJ Thompson and Landon McDonald return at the WR spot with lightning fast speed and great catching ability.

2018 Offensive Outlook: The Mounties need to run the football to take some pressure off of our QB’s. We need to make the first defender miss and obviously we need the OL to work hard in the trenches and get a push. If we can get the running game going, that will allow us to get our passing game going and spread the ball around to our talented group of receivers.

2018 Defensive Outlook: We need to be more aggressive on defense. We gave up too many big plays in 2017 and a lot of it was to being out of position or poor tackling. We will be working on flying to the ball and gang tackling as we head into the season.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: New kicker Aaron Parks brings a strong leg to the PO Mountie Football Team. He will be playing soccer and football this season. He has looked really good punting and kicking for us so far. Hopefully, his strong leg can flip the field for us this season.
