Team Strength(s) for 2017:
Return players with starting and quality minutes from last season. Defensive line and linebackers and offensively the running game with all but one returning offensive lineman and returning running backs and quarterback
Biggest Shoes / Holes to Fill in 2017:
Middle linebacker with the loss of Nico Martini and OT with graduation of Dawson Borycz
2017 Season Outlook:
This season if we can reduce our turn overs on offense and improve in our defensive secondary we can have a special year. The speed at which we gel as a team will make a difference as well.
Outlook on Conference/Division:
I always argue that the MAC Gold is one of the toughest around week to week. It will be important for us to compete well vs Cousino in our opener and then open strong in league play vs St Clair who is an unknown with a new coaching staff. There isn't a down week and we will have to be prepared, be physical, be focused, and get a little bit lucky to compete for the Gold title which is a team goal!
