2019 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 have to turn the ball over less and have confidence in the red zone. We gained a lot of valuable experience last year that we need to build upon.

Defense: We need to continue to cause turnovers and play assignment football.

Special Teams: Need to create big plays in the return game, and tackle well in the kicking game.
