Key Stats:

2017 Offensive Outlook: Our Starting QB is returning and 4 of our top 6 RB’s from last year. Our top 2 receivers are also returning along with 4 starting offensive linemen. This year we will ride our offensive line as far as they will take us. We are excited about some of our younger offensive skill players and think they will be able to push the older guys.

2017 Defensive Outlook: With 8 starters returning on Defense we feel that we will be solid. The 3 starters we lost though were all very good football players and we will need somebody to step up to fill those positions. Just like on the offensive side though we have some younger players who have made some big improvements in strength and speed since last season.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: With All-State K/P Carter Raupach returning this is definitely a strength for us. He is a tremendous weapon to have as a coach.
