2019 Offensive Outlook: Offensively, it starts up front with our offensive linemen. We must get movement up front & protect our QB in the passing game. We must protect the football and finish drives. We must play with confidence, remain humble & hungry throughout the season.
2019 Defensive Outlook: Defensively, we have to play as a unit & have 11 men flying to the football. We must be fundamentally sound tacklers & our defensive line has to establish itself & get after the QB when they are passing. We must Raise the Bar this year as a defensive unit.
2019 Special Teams Outlook: Special teams is very important to our success this season. We must control field position, be perfect on PATs, & create big plays that will put our offense or defense in a position to be successful. We must always compete on our special teams.
