2021 Outlook: Please let us know the keys about your team on offense, defense, and special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?

Offense: Offensively we need to be able to have balance and success in both running and passing. We will need to continue to move the sticks and keep our defense off the field. The offense we need to get the ball to our playmakers.

Defense: Defensively we need to stop the run and force teams into third and longs. We need to force turnovers to get our offense back on the field.

Special Team: We don’t have any returners for kicking/ punting etc.
