What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
Our offense must protect the football, finish drives, and consistently execute up front to be successful this season.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Defensively, we must be fundamentally sound tacklers, cause turnovers, and play with great effort at all times.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
To be successful this season we must be at our best each week. We must approach each practice and game with a purpose and focus on winning one play at a time.
