2015 Outlook:The keys to our offense this year is the amount of weapons we have on the outside. We are fortunate enough to have a high number of athletes in the same position with no true starters rather than a large rotation.
Our goal is to have different sets using the athletes in a variety of ways to keep the defense guessing.
Defensively we’ve looked very sound all off-season with experience at every level of position. If we communicate well, and play to our strengths our defense will be able to get many three and outs. We’ve stressed the turnover ratio all offseason to get our offense the ball back.
The kids have been working hard ever since I was appointed and they’re dedicated just as much as I am to turn the program back around.
QB: Ian McCole will start, with Joel Santana and Noah Allegretta also getting time.
RB: Jeremy Urbanavage, Fred Morales, Blake Florio, Julio Cabrera and Nate Labotsky will rotate.
