2016 Offensive outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on offense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)
With many new starters, we’ll have to come together quickly to have success early in the season. We’ve seen great growth this summer as the reps have increased and we’ll go as our projected starting QB Jorden Freeman goes. He is the team leader and the most explosive player on offense.
2016 Defensive Outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on defense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)
As on offense, we have to move at a varsity speed very quickly. We’ll be undersized compared to most teams, so we’ll rely on speed and film study to compete against our opponents in the always-tough SOL National.
2016 Special Teams Outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?)
All Special Teams positions are open for camp competition.
