Key Stats:

2018 Offensive Outlook: While we return a good number of key starters offensively, we have big shoes to fill to replace those who graduated. Replacing RB Joe Meinert who accounted for 1500 yards of offense and 15 touchdowns in 2017 as a senior will be vital to our success. Up front, 4 year starter at Center, Seth Benson, has left a big void. If we have individuals step up to fill those holes, and our returning starters continue to develop, we should have a successful year offensively.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Defensively our motto is simple, if we can execute 11 as 1 one play at a time we will be successful. We have an experienced group in the secondary, returning MLB Nikhai Hill-Green, and have some starting experience returning up front. Much like offense, we return key starters, but have also lost some great football players to graduation. We must have individuals step up and fill those voids.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Sr. Max Kunzmann converted 51/53 extra point opportunities in 2017. We must replace him and punter Joe Meinert.
