What does your team need to improve on from last year?
Offensively and defensively a key this year is to continue to build depth at all levels. We have a lot of returning experience up front on our offensive and defensive lines. We feel that could be a strength on either side of the football.The development of younger players to fill the roles of upperclassmen that have graduated are going to play a significant role this year. To graduation, we lost a majority of our starting wide receivers, skill players, and defensive backs. Finding players to step up and take advantage of those open opportunities will be huge on either side of the ball.
