Connor Barrett led team in reception and will touch the ball a variety of ways. A complete athlete who can be a difference maker on offense.
Young offensive line with limited game experience.
Our success on offense will be determined by our ability to run the ball and attack the perimeter in our passing game. Limited turnovers will be a must for us to be successful. We have to get our playmakers the ball a variety of ways.
WR core is completed with Dylan Ablak, Anthony Doyle and Armondo Novelli
2017 Defensive Outlook: Bret Hicks will be leader of LB ing core.
Connor Barrett is a returning starter at LBer
Secondary returns 3 starters with Troy Donofrio, Dylan Ablak, and Anthony Doyle
Hunter Curran is only returning starter on D-Line.
Defensively we have to be built to stop the run first. Our conference has aggressive running teams. We have to be stout against the run to have a successful season on the defensive side of the ball.
2017 Special Teams Outlook: Logan Scott, Steve Alauzen, and Connor Barret will all be crucial to the return game. All 3 have experience in the return game.
