What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We need to continue to build a foundation on our run game, to allow our passing game to be successful. We have been really solid with our playmakers on the ground, but need to be more two dimensional and develop a passing attack early in the season. Garcia, under center for the third consecutive year has had a great off season and will look to continue to use his legs and arm to lead our offense. Stump, Kenny, and Amick will carry the bulk of the load carrying the football. Three year starter Criley will anchor the OL flanked by Figard and Bennett. We will need to fill two new slots on the OL, with Will Winters sliding inside from TE.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Must replace all conference linebacker and team captain Conner McGuire. Look for Kenny, Criley, and Amick to fill in that void inside. Bennett, Figard, and Winters all return up front. Stump will be the leader in a young secondary with lack of experience.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
Senior heavy leadership will be key. We have a ton of experience returning, but having some important positions step up will be our ticket. Garcia, Stump, Kenny, Criley, and Miller will be our go to guys, but need Kitner, Bennett, and a host of others to fill in some open spots early in the year.
