What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
Offense needs to run the ball well and continue on throwing the ball. Building on the run game will be vital to our success, losing Nolder at QB and bring Skotnicki and Wehrer up to speed is also essential.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
All around improvement in our base scheme and flying to ball and being physical at the point of attack.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
Senior leadership should be key to our success, developing a culture of playing the best and playing at a high level. We are thick at the Big’s and young at the skill positions, everyone must work together to be successful.
