2015 Outlook:

Offense:

Adapting to the terminology of a new offensive coordinator and developing depth at all positions. Looking forward to the return of senior quarterback Brendan Miller from an early season injury last year. Sophomore running back Colton Rapp set the school record for freshman rushing yards in 2014. One of the strengths of the offense should be the line, as 4 of 5 starters return this season.

Defense:

One of the strengths of this year’s team. Eight starters return from last season. One of the keys for the defense, as well as for the team overall, is developing depth at all positions and staying healthy.

Special Teams:

Looking forward to the return of Spencer Miller who was among the league leaders in punting last year. The team needs to increase consistency in the other aspects of the kicking game.

Overall keys to the success of the 2015 team:

Team play, one game at a time approach, and practice intensity.
