2022 Offensive Outlook: “The key to our team offensively is finding the ability to be balanced in the run and pass game. We also need to sustain more drives and minimize turnovers.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “The key to our team defensively is to reduce the big plays and be able to get stops. We need to improve our play recognition and tackle better in space.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “Although the opportunities have not been many, I feel we will have one of the best PK among the teams we play. He can be a great weapon if he gets the opportunities this season.”
