What does your offense need to improve on from last year? 
Last year we had an offensive explosion balancing between the run and the pass. We had 1-1000 yard rusher in Nick Weaver and 1- very close (914) yds in Taylar Altman. As a team we ran for over 3000 yards and averaged the most points in very long time for the school. This year we look to expand upon last years success with two senior running backs and amazing speed in the WR positions. We have to gain experience with new quarterbacks after losing a three year starter (Isaak Jones) to graduation. This team has tremendous potential to be just as successful as last years team.

What does your defense need to improve on from last year 
The defense made huge improvements from the year prior by giving up less points than the season before. We need to be more consistent in the secondary. We did a good job but gave up too many big plays. We need to continue to tackle well and keep getting better.
