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: We need to stay healthy first. Quarterback Ethan Kuczynski is our leader on offense. We need someone to step up and fill KJ Snerr shoes. We think we have those players in Michael Neary and Nathan Litsch. It all starts up front and we have experience on the line with a few new guys this year. We have good skill guys back who are athletes.
Defense: We are going to be quick and athletic this year. We aren’t overly big this year, so we have to be quick to the ball to be successful this year.
