Key Stats: Clayton Parrish rushed for 1108 yards last season and is looking to challenge the single season rushing record of 2026 yards this year.
2017 Offensive Outlook: We have a solid running back and experienced offensive line which should be able to wear defenders down with our triple option attack. Hopefully our QB and receivers can balance our rushing game by spreading the field.
2017 Defensive Outlook: We have a solid linebacker group and experienced defensive linemen. Hopefully our young secondary can rise to the challenge of incredible receivers they will face this season.
2017 Special Teams Outlook: With Logan Hurley returning to handle the kicking duties, our special teams should be able to provide solid field position and score points.
