What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
Offensively, our line is young but experienced. We have depth at skill positions. Defensively, we have made some schematic adjustments that will better fit our personnel.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Secondary and Dline are experienced. LB corps needs to grow up fast. In terms of Special Teams, we have very talented returners and one of the better kickers in the area in Smigley.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
We are very optomistic about this season! The team has worked hard and is hungry to continue the success we have had
in recent years (earning a spot in the playoffs 3 out of the last 4 seasons and finishing 2nd in conference last season)
