2017 Outlook: A lack of experience doomed the Colonels in 2016, going just 3-7. The roster is still on the small side, but it’s a lineup with talent and another year’s experience. Malik Traynham is a threat as a back and safety, while Seniors Jayvon Jones and Jabril Robinson bring experience and talent to Bobby Martin’s team. The roster is a bit undersized, so hard work, determination, and good senior leadership will need to carry the Colonels in the early part of the season.
