What are your expectations for your team this year?
We are going to try to stay competitive in a very tough Heartland Division 1 with the like of Jersey Shore (2020 state runner up) Shamokin and Selinsgrove. If we can find a QB and one more steady O lineman we can make some noise and compete for a playoff berth

When your team is on offense, what are the keys to success?
Being able to run the football consistently and to limit mistakes.

When your team is on defense, what are the keys to success?
Being as aggressive as we were last year.
