What are your expectations for your team this year? 
We have a lot of experience coming back from last season, especially at the skill positions. If we can get decent line play on both sides of the ball, I expect us to have a really good season.

When your team is on offense, what are the keys to success? 
We first must find solidify the offensive line. After that we have to do a much better job of taking care of the football. In our two loses last year we turned the ball over a lot. Also we have to cut down on penalties.

When your team is on defense, what are the keys to success? 
We have to use are speed and fly to the football. We will not be the biggest defense, especially a long the defensive line, but we will be fast. We have to take advantage of that. Also we have to force more turnovers, last year we seemed to just missed making the big plays.
