What are your expectations for your team this year?
Our expectations this year are to play to the best of our ability each week and to develop a family like attitude across our team. We have a lot of young players who will be given an opportunity to show what they can do on a Friday night, so we are all very excited to see who will make the most of their chances.
When your team is on offense, what are the keys to success?
Our keys to success on offense revolves around avoiding penalties and holding onto the football. Aside from those two things, we will aim to develop our identity offensively as the season unfolds.
When your team is on defense, what are the keys to success?
Defensively we will aim to align correctly and understand each of our assignments pre-snap. From there, we have to tackle efficiently and force some turnovers. That all starts by hustling to the football each play and executing the drills we practice each day.
Players we should keep an eye on?
Jake Bobbin, Ross Bobbin, Gavin Guers, Derek Walasavage, and Austyn Fields
