2020 Offensive Outlook: Having more success running the ball this year will be key. We will be filling a number of positions, so getting those players up to game speed will also be key.
2020 Defensive Outlook: Filling in positions lost to graduation and getting those players ready by game one will be key. We will need to fly to the ball and get off the field on third down
2020 Special Teams Outlook: Getting the ball into field goal range so we can utilize our talented kicker more often, only attempted 2 FG’s last year. Both were good at 43 and 47 yds. Continue to prevent the long returns will also be key.
