What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We did well offensively last year, especially for it being a new system for all the players. We just need to keep developing the offense.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
We have alot of experience back from a very good defense in 2018 and expect to be even better in 2019.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
Last years team laid down a great foundation for this years team to build on. Expectations are high as we now have a year of experience under our belts . The players know what we expect of them and have an understanding of the level of commitment needed to be successful. We lost some great players from last years team but we believe we have players capable of stepping up and being able to fill those positions. The biggest void we will need to replace is the Leadership provided by Cole Weist and Damon Lemin.
