What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We took a big step in the run game last year and look to build off that in 2019. RB’s Liam Kirk/ Chris Radina/ James Condi will get a bulk of carries behind 4 returning starters at line. Areas that we need to improve on are turnovers and penalties. We also need to improve on capitalizing inside the redzone.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
We return a handful of starters on a young defense. We need to eliminate big plays and create turnovers to help give momentum to our offense. We also must be sound fundamental tacklers. We look for our rising seniors to lead a passionate group who can control the tempo on defense.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
We are optimistic about what we can accomplish in 2019. We have a handful of returning starters who gained valuable experience last year and we look to turn the corner in a competitive Central League.
