2017 Offensive Outlook: We need to come together as a unit and win our 1 on 1 matchups. Need to have a strong run game and also be able to throw to get the ball in our athletes hands. We will not be the biggest team up front, however I expect our line to be athletic and hard working. This is the most athletic team that I have had offensively in my 5 years at Maplewood.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Team defense was a strength for us last year and I expect the guys stepping in to be ready to go. A lot of guys got experience last year, so much that they almost could be considered starters. Need to fly around and get 11 hats to the ball. Last year we gave up cheap touchdowns and did not cause as many turnovers as I would like. Hopefully we will be more aggressive this year.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Hunter is a solid kicker for kickoffs and extra points. Dylan does a great job punting, they just need to do what they were doing last year. No special teams breakdowns!
