2021 Offensive Outlook: We look to be more explosive offensively with several three-year starters returning. By finally having our first off-season together we were able to get stronger, faster, and get in more reps and installation than in my previous two seasons as head coach. Our offensive line looks much improved and averages 6″2 270 Lbs across the board. We will be multiple looks offensively which I think will cause some headaches for opposing defenses to plan for. The key to our success is to sustain drives and avoid costly turnovers.

2021 Defensive Outlook: Our defense looks to be a lot tougher and stronger with several key starters returning on all three levels of the defense. We finished 2020 with an aggressive defense that was very physical. We expect to be even more physical in 2021. The key to our defense is to play physically, create turnovers, avoid costly penalties, and communicate our checks.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: Our special teams should be an outstanding group this season as many of them will be three-year starters in the same role. We need to be sure tacklers and create explosive opportunities for our return men.
