2021 Offensive Outlook: Our Quarterback play needs to be efficient and not turn the ball over. Our Offensive Line needs to be able to control the line of scrimmage and take control. We need to play unselfish football.

2021 Defensive Outlook: The Defense needs to play good fundamental football and swarm to the ball. We need to stay healthy and avoid critical injuries that hampered us in 2020.
