What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
Jaden Leiby returns at the quarterback position to direct a spread read run/pass offense. With the team’s experience and familiarity offensively, we can expand on what we have done a year ago. Four starters up front will be replaced, but a number of offensive linemen gained valuable experience. Those offensive linemen will be one-way performers with added depth this year.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
A solid nucleus returns on the defensive side of the ball. Tyler Elsdon, Jake Green, Jason Lipshaw, Jaden Leiby, Zack Chowansky return as 4-year starters defensively. Jessie White will be starting his 3rd consecutive year at defensive end. Building a rotation is key keeping guys fresh.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
Mitchell Lavelle continues to develop as our kicker. His leg strength has improved which helps with his consistency on PAT’s and Field Goals.
