2015 Outlook: A year after graduating 15 seniors we are looking to improve on last year’s 5-6 record and eastern conference playoff berth. We have a good core of experienced players returning even after losing a large group to graduation. We have had a great offseason in the weight room and at various camps/ 7 on 7’s we have attended. The players are hungry to compete for a championship.
Offense: Our keys offensively to become more consistent from week to week and improve upon our decision making specifically at the quarterback position. We will be young but experienced offensively and our strength will be the offensive line.
Defense: Our keys defensively will be to stop the big play, especially in the passing game, which hurt us the last two years. Our strengths will be the defensive line and linebackers. We will be replacing our entire secondary besides Kenny Boyer.
Special Team: Special Teams was our most consistent phase of the game this past season. Our key is to create more opportunities on special teams to better set up our offense and defense. More explosive plays!
