2017 Season Outlook:
We plan on being very competitive season by putting a lot of emphasis on our offensive development. With leadership from our QB and OL's, it should be an fun and interesting season.
Outlook on Conference/Division:
I believe the SVL is a very strong conference to compete in week in and week out. It's hard to predict who'll win the crown at the beginning of the season with so many good teams competing. We're going to compete on every down to put W's in the win column.
