A: We have good team speed, but we need to be able to neutralize other teams’ speed to be successful.

Coach’s View

We played the seventh-toughest schedule in the state last year. The young guys learned a lot and saw what it takes to reach the same caliber of skill displayed by state-ranked football teams. Having players who can recognize and work toward that will be a huge advantage for us in the future.
