What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
Our offense needs to cut down on the turnovers. We gave the ball away too many times last season. We also need to reduce the amount of negative plays, especially in the run game. Our third goal is to eliminate pre-snap penalties.

What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Tackling better and getting more guys to the ball carrier are our two main goals. These two things go hand in hand. We had “willing” tacklers last year, but we were young and not always capable of getting the ball carrier to the ground in one on one situations.
