2017 Offensive Outlook: We plan to build on last season being a ball control offense. We will have a veteran offensive line returning four players that started 4 games or more. We will have a new quarterback this year so we have to be patient with him and his development.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We need to continue to be an attacking style defense and cause other teams head aches with our schemes. The players understand the expectation for our defense to set the tone in games.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: We need to be more consistent in our kicking game.
