2017 Offensive Outlook: We need to build around a solid core of returning players. We have to replace our skill players at QB / RB / WR.
In order to be successful, our team will need to develop a balanced attack and develop our playmaking capabilities.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We need to build a cohesive unit that plays fundamentally sound football. There are several returning starters. Our underclassmen gained valuable experience and will be counted on to replace our graduates. In order to be successful, we need to create turnovers and hold our opponents to 3 and out situations and capitalize on being opportunistic.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We need to retool our special teams. There will be competition to replace our Kicker and Punter. We will be successful if we can flip the field and pin our opponents back with our special teams. Taking advantage of scoring opportunities is a must.
