What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We have a very deep and veteran group of skill players returning for the 2019 season. If we can build off the success we had last year, especially through the air, we can have an explosive offense. Across the line we have to replace two very good linemen, but with three multiple year starters coming back, hopefully they can gel together quickly.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Defensively our skill player depth should be fine. At Linebacker we have 2 returning starters and a third LB who has plenty of experience, we just have to find some good backups. Across the line we again have to replace some good players, but I think we have some guys who are up to the challenge.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
We lose our long-snapper of 3 years, but return our place kicker Raeff DiCello who came on strong at the end of last year. Also returning is our top return man Addison Mullins. We also have plenty of athletes to fill out our special teams, which should make our special teams a weapon for us this season.
