What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We need to finish drives in the red zone. We entered the red zone many times last year and came out with zero points which made a huge difference in a few games. We need to play hard to the end and stay positive at all times.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
We need to keep getting to the ball. We need to be more disciplined and get more guys to the ball. We have to do a better job of hitting and wrapping.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
I am excited for this years team. We have a bunch of guys back from last years team. We were a young team last year and will continue to be young this year. This season we had a strong sophomore class that has had huge success in the jr high. There are many talented players.
