What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
Our offense needs to continue to improve in the running game. The return of several lineman for this year will definitely help. Running backs Bryheem Patterson and Alex Hoban will give us excellent skilled backs. Fullback John Symons is a big physical blocker. If we can become more consistent running the ball, it will take pressure off of our quarterback and make our play-action game more successful.

What does your defense need to improve on from last year 
Our defense needs to improve in getting takeaways and making stops in key situations. Our defense will be inexperienced but has plenty of talent to improve on last years effort. Our ability to get off the field in key situations will determine our success this season.
