2020 Offensive Outlook: It’s a multiple offense based out of the wingT. Tempo is going to be very important, as well as conditioning. Our goal is to get as many offensive plays as we can. Deception will be a big part of our offense as well as reading the defensive alignment and coverages.

2020 Defensive Outlook: Defense is a 4-3 base. Our goal is to keep teams off balance with deception in our coverages and a decent amount of blitzing while remaining gap sounds against the run.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: Our goal is to kick off more than we kick return, but we also want to have big plays on special teams.
