2023 Offensive Outlook: We return our leading passer, receiver, and rusher from last year. We also return 4 out of 5 starters on the offensive line. We struggled at times last year establishing the run game and that will be a major priority for us this year. Although we return a lot of players that saw a significant amount of time on offense, we still have a lot of positions battles that will need to be settled in the preseason. The key to a successful year on offense will be to improve significantly in our ability to run the football.

2023 Defensive Outlook: We also return a large amount of players who saw a significant amount of time on defense. We return our entire defensive backfield and I believe that will be the strength of our defense. We struggled stopping the run last year so we are looking to change up a few things to prevent that from happening again. The key to a successful year on defense will be to stop the run.

2023 Special Teams Outlook: We return our kicker and our punter. I think our returners are very good and we are looking for them to make some big plays for us.
