Coach’s View

We’re still a young team, but we’ve become bigger, stronger, and more talented overall. Success involves understanding what a championship-caliber attitude is, and we’ve made progress with that. After being in Cleveland for a year now, there’s no doubt in my mind this can be a special place for football again.
