Key Stats:

2017 Offensive Outlook: We will rely on the three starters returning along the offensive line to help develope a strong unit upfront. We return a lot of experienced skill players which should be our strength offensively. We will have three very capable players competing to replace Devin Fairman at QB.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We return a good amount of experienced players on defense. We have 10 players returning who started at one point during the season. We must be more consistent this year. We must play better on the road as we only allowed 33 points at home last season.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We have a very capable punter in Drew Orlosky. We will have several kids including Drew competing for the kicking duties.
