Key Stats:

2018 Offensive Outlook: We must improve and establish a solid running game that will last us through the season. The key will be the offensive line which returns several senior leaders. We need to develop wide receivers to replace all the wide receivers who we lost to graduation.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Defensive Line will be the key to set the pace early, we return several players who started or rotated in the front 7. The defensive backs will see a lot of new faces that will need to get up to speed as fast as possible; a talented group that is just game inexperienced.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: We need to replace a 4-year kicker along with a couple 3-year punt/kickoff returners and punter. We have a solid group of special team returners and an incoming class. We need to re-establish a solid special teams, that is explosive to put our offense and defense in good starting positions.
