What does your offense need to improve on from last year? 
We started 7 underclassmen so we will need to build on that experience from last year. In the passing game, we need to be more efficient. In the running game, we need to do a better job in our knowledge of our schemes, leading to less mental mistakes.

What does your defense need to improve on from last year 
We started 7 underclassmen so we will need to build on that experience from last year. It seemed like every time there was a big play, we could watch film and see a breakdown in assignment. So, a better knowledge of our system and the assignments associated with each call.
