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?
Our #1 key is staying healthy. We have so many players playing both ways, its important that our core guys stay health for us to have a successful season. We have to be better on defense!
Offense: We return one of the most electrifying playmakers in the state at QB. He has a really good supporting cast around him. Less penalties, and better scoring percentage in the red zone.
Defense: We have a new defensive scheme and culture. We cannot get burned by the big play as we did the year prior. Must force more turnovers and give our offense shorter fields.
Special Team: We should be pretty consistent with our kicking game. Our teams should be similar to last years; decent across the board.
