What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We must be more efficient in both the run and pass game this year. We must be able to establish the run to set up our passing game. Physical play at the line of scrimmage will dictate this.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Defensively we will eliminate the big play and play complete games. Often times last year we would defend well the majority of the game to then give up 1 or 2 big plays that cost us late.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
We are very excited about our depth and athleticism this year. We lost a good amount of starters but we have a slew of young athletes looking to step into those roles. To lead the young talent, we return All-Area players such as Mike Torcini Brent Romano and Larry Dickerson. These guys are proven play-makers who will look to take the next step this season. Last year we closed the gap and were competitive in a lot of games, we feel this team can get over the hump and win some more games.
