What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
“We expect to be explosive on offense and with our second year in our no-huddle system we will be able to force defenses to have to defend us from sideline to sideline….we want to push the tempo offensively, Play Fast, and keep the touchdown cannon at Buccaneer Stadium firing all night long.”
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Play aggressive, attacking, and disciplined football. We want to be the best tackling team in the conference. Keep improving daily on our fundamentals
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
“We look forward to the process of continuing to build the football program here at Burrell in 2019…we took great strides forward in 2018 and we will have to work hard to replace a great group of seniors from last season…Our players have bought into our systems and have worked hard over the summer and off-season to improve each and every day…I have been very impressed by the dedication and leadership of our upcoming seniors and I believe they have the potential to be great leaders for this 2019 team…We will work to continue to make positive strides towards our goals in 2019 and we expect to compete for a WPIAL playoff spot.”
