What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
red Zone efficiency. Pass pro. Run game
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Defending the run. Minimizing big plays. Tackling and pursuit.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
We are expecting to compete for a conference and district championship this season. Offensively, we are returning a plethora of weapons and we have made a few positional changes to enhance our versatility. Our Offensive and Defensive lines line lost 4 starters, but our returning lineman have had an excellent offseason. Defensively, we have experience and athleticism in the Secondary and LB group. Special Teams, Ryan Semyon is a top tier weapon in our kicking game
