2018 Offensive Outlook: We return 9 starters on offense this year. We had several key injuries last season that led to a lot of younger players getting playing time. We also lost our leading receiver from the 2017 season Brain Donahue in week three and our big OL/Dl Scott Houseman week 5 to season ending injuries. We are returning the Regular Season WPIAL Leading Rusher. We have to stay healthy and execute our game plans to be successful.

2018 Defensive Outlook: Again due to injuries we had a lot of young guys that played last year. We are returning 9 starters on Defense. We are hoping with the playing time the younger players got will help us this season. We have to again stay healthy and be more aggressive.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: We are returning our punter and three returners. We have to take advantage the experience these players have and make things happen for us.
