What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We need to run the ball more effectively and consistently and improve our red zone efficiency. Jax Miller will be looked upon to pick up where he left off last season as a tailback. We are expecting big things from him this year. Park Penrod needs to fill some big shoes at QB and he has the talent and ability to do so. Returning Receivers Drew Harper and Ethan Syam are keys to the passing game.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Our defense needs to improve on 3rd down and getting off the field. Our keys this year will start at middle linebacker where we are expecting good things from Jacob Horigan, Jordan Rapp and Jude Casey. Our secondary returns 3 starters in Drew Harper, Ethan Syam and Andrew Tedesco.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
As coaches we are extremely excited about this years Avonworth team. We return several good football players from last years team and the younger players have worked hard in the weight room to get ready for the fall.
