What does your offense need to improve on from last year? 
We need to find a level of consistency. Creating more balance in our offensive play calling will be of great benefit. A young offensive line will have to mature quickly and we expect strong leadership from Sr. QB Donte Rhodes.

What does your defense need to improve on from last year *
We need to be more effective in stopping the run and creating predictable down and distance situations. We are emphasizing playing fast and being physical. The unquestioned leader of the unit is Sr. LB Jon Stochla.
