What are your expectations for your team this year?
We expect to compete on a weekly basis. Our expectations will be to fight for a league title and to qualify for districts.

When your team is on offense, what are the keys to success?
Our key to success on offense will be how fast our new starters come together as a team. We have to replace 8 starters on offense.

When your team is on defense, what are the keys to success?
Our key to success on defense will be our defensive line. We have a majority of our DL back and we feel that will be the strength of our defense.
