Special Team Starters Returning: None
2017 Offensive Outlook: We have a ton of skill to replace. We will rely on our guys up front and a powerful running game until we fins some guys that can catch the ball. We feel that we have a strong group of linemen returning. Our JV team was successful and we hope those players can replace the great players that we graduated.
2017 Defensive Outlook: Smith and Kurtz are hard nosed linebackers that will be the key to our defense. Garner will lead the d line along with a host of others. We must find some defensive backs. We need to develop the defensive perimeter players and the secondary to have a good defense.
2017 Special Teams Outlook: We think that Preston Karstetter can replace the punter and Kicker from last year.
