2018 Offensive Outlook: We are returning a solid number of experienced playmakers on offense. The key to the success of our offense will be effective communication and team oriented play. With numerous athletes able to make plays, an unselfish trust in each other will be essential to reaching our max potential.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Defensively, we have depth and experience. Our secondary is athletic and physical. Our defensive line has more depth than we have ever had. Our linebacker play will determine the overall success of our defense.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: We return a very good kicker in Cam Renfrew. While we lost our punter, Brandon Clark, we have a few guys competing for his spot.
