2016 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: It starts with our offensive line. We need them to step up and help the young quarterback. Aaron Young is another guy that should help on the offensive side of the ball.
Defense: We have two new linebackers stepping in this year at the will and sam positions. Tan Evans is the only returning linebacker. On the line we have Hall and Raimondo coming back, but we have two spots to fill. We have a ton of kids with experience in the secondary.
Special Team: We have three soccer kids coming out and working hard at the kicking positions. Aaron Young is one of our returners.
