What are your expectations for your team this year? 
I expect us to compete in every game. We play a brutal schedule but with many starters returning and big game experience, our kids will be ready to play.

When your team is on offense, what are the keys to success? 
With our whole OL returning and most of our skill positions back, we should be able to move the football. We have to minimize turnovers and dumb mistakes.

When your team is on defense, what are the keys to success? 
We have a lot of returning starters back so I hope we can evolve the defense into what it should be, 11 guys flying to the ball creating chaos.
