What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
As an offensive we need to continue to improve on our physicality at the line of scrimmage. We were young up-front last year, but return 5 experienced players on the OL who are primed to take a huge step forward. We also must improve our 3rd down conversion percentage. Last year we struggled to sustain long drives, relying on the big strike. Improving on 3rd down will allow us to control the ball and sustain drives when the big play is not there.

What does your defense need to improve on from last year
On defense we must get back to being an aggressive and swarming unit this season. We were young on defense last year and while a lot of guys got great experience, they were leaning on the fly. These players now all return with the confidence to play much faster and with aggression!
