2021 Offensive Outlook: Limited numbers mean we must stay healthy. We need to develop skilled players quickly to balance our offense. We need to execute, what we do, to the best of our ability and not be concerned with the other team as much as we are concerned about our assignments.

2021 Defensive Outlook: Tackle well, create turnovers and develop depth. Make the opponent’s offense earn yards gained and not make mistakes allowing big plays or easy yardage gained.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: Just be solid in this aspect of the game. Don’t do things that will give the opponent a short field / easy score or give us poor field position.
