Key Stats: Obtaining wins to make it back to the playoffs

2017 Offensive Outlook: We are installing the Offense made famous by Army, Navy and Georgia Tech. This offense forces the defense to make a decision and we’ll look to capitalize on the defense playing unsound.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We are returning to the 3-5 stack defense that we ran from 2009-2014. Our stack defense had 4 top 5 finishes and 1 top 10 finish from 2010-2014. Returning to flawless execution of this aggressive defense will allow us to have a successful year

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Solidifying our punting situation along with the continued development our of place kickers will allow to continue success on the special teams side of the ball
