Key Newcomers
N/A
What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We had 2 – 1,000 yard rushers and both of them are back. We obviously have to continue to build upon our rushing attack but at the same time build upon our passing game.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
We did a great job defending the run but had a lot of youth against the pass. With our secondary back and building off of last year, we expect to be a lot better against the pass.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
With so many starters back on both sides of the ball, we expect to have a very successful year. We feel we were a playoff team last year that didn’t get the opportunity that we thought we earned. This year, we know what we are capable of and our expectations are high. We have to maintain are dominance on the run and tighten up our pass defense. As long as we do that and stay healthy, we are looking forward to a great season.
