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: On offense we have to replace our quarterback that graduated. We are fast this year, but we have to find new roles for everybody. We are talented up front on the offensive line, but we are untested.
We have to develop chemistry. That will be key for us this year.
Defense: Our key on defense is going to be the defensive line. I think we are untested on the line.
We are going to be strong in the back seven. Guys like Benny Walls, Nick Vandevere and Shaun Harris will lead our defense.
Special Team: We have a battle going on at the kicker position and Robert Caprice will do the punting. We have four or five guys that will do the kick and punt returns.
