Key Stats:

2017 Offensive Outlook: With 8 returning starters, the offense looks to build on a 2016 season that saw the Indians score 3 or more touchdowns in 5 of the 8 games they played. Keeping returning QB Skyy Moore healthy this year will help the Indians’ offense as he saw action in only 6 quarters due to injury in 2016. Chase Villani will carry the load in the ground game.

2017 Defensive Outlook: With 7 returning starters, the Indians will look to develop some continuity on defense. Linebacker Chase Villani will anchor the defensive front. The Indians have some speed in the secondary with Skyy Moore and Billy Frolich returning.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: The Indians look to replace both Punter and Kicker with the loss of Clayton Krol and Nathan Genstein to graduation. Senior Ben Ream and Senior Chase Maivald will compete for the kicking duties.
