Biggest storyline: Can the Vikings bounce back in 2017?
Names to watch this season: Senior WR Jacob Temple Senior DB Troy Tams
Biggest holes to fill: The Vikings will need to reload especially on offense with just two starters back from a season ago.
EDGY's Early Take: Geneva had a rare down season in 2016 and look for the Vikings to bounce back this fall. While the schedule is once again a challenge look for the Vikings to rely upon a defense with experience back plus a roster always heavy with plenty of talent on hand.
