2015 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: The main focus is to keep Jordan Young healthy. He is a big part of our offense. Last year he had over 3,000 yards of offense and 41 touchdowns. He is a guy that makes us go and was player of the year in the conference.
I think the offensive line can be better this year. We do have a lot of newcomers on the line, but they are talented. These are guys that have been waiting for there turn and learned a lot from the older guys. It’s their time now.
We are young at running back and receiver and we will find out more about those guys in camp.
Defense: On defense we have to replace two division one kids in the secondary. We have to replace Ahkema Evans and Jay Stocker. We have one returning starting in Kevin Kirk coming back. So this year we are going to have three young kids in the secondary.
Chris Jordan will lead our linebackers this fall.
Our strength on defense will be our line. We have DL Jelil Norman, DL Isaiah Hall, and DL Javon Sampson all returning. We should be big and physical up front this year.
Special Team: We return our kicker and punter. We are real excited about our special teams. We have a bunch of young guys that will do punt and kick returns for us.
