2015 Outlook: The new coaching staff at Oxford is trying to change the culture of Oxford football. The kids have been working extremely hard in the weight room and through spring ball getting stronger, more athletic, and picking up our scheme extremely well. They have totally bought into what we are selling and, if they keep working as hard as they have been so far, the result on the field will take care of itself.
We are a triple option team and through spring ball, our coaching staff has been giving the players large chunks of the scheme and they have picked it up well.
Defensively, we will be running a multiple 4-3 look that will be versatile. The most important thing for us on both sides of the ball is developing our undersized offensive and defensive line to be perfect in their technique and execution to offset the size that we will be facing in our Ches-Mont schedule.
The kids have been great so far and they are ready for a winning culture at Oxford, now they just have to work harder and harder to achieve that goal of consistent success in a great conference.
