What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
We need to be less predictable and keep defenses guessing. We need to use the passing game more efficiently and take advantage of our players skill sets. We are excited for he changes we have made to the offense. In order to be successful we need to stay healthy and use our players talents to our advantage.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
We need to more aggressive on defense and work to create more turn overs. We have made some changes to the defense and especially our pass coverage schemes. We need to improve our pass coverage and take away the big plays from the offense and make more big plays on defense.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
I am very excited about the teams attitude and willingness to improve on last years season. We had a good off season in the weight room and the players and “buying in” to the changes we have made both offensively and defensively. We have many talented athletes that we plan on using in multiple positions.
