2020 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, play fast, finish drives, and play with confidence.

2020 Defensive Outlook: Defensively we return 7 starters from last years team. We have to play as a unit & be fundamentally sound tacklers. Our defensive line has to establish itself & get after the QB. We must do Whatever It Takes to be successful this season.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: We want to be aggressive this season in our special team units. We must control field position, & create big plays that will put our offense & defense in a position to be successful. We must always compete on our special teams.
