What are your expectations for your team this year?
Return are a number of experienced players from last year. We embrace and work towards yearly the same expectations and goals. We face a very competitive non-league and league schedule.

When your team is on offense, what are the keys to success?
Execution will always remain a substantial part of our offense. Using spread sets and incorporating an up-tempo offense we want to be consistent gaining first downs, and developing explosive plays.

When your team is on defense, what are the keys to success?
Emphasizing that our four down defensive linemen can control the run and also have a pass rush. Playing assignment defensive football where as a unit play with a lot of energy to ones maximum effort. Execute run fits and play with confidence in the secondary.
