Q. Any lessons learned from last year?
A. There are lessons learned every day. It’s hard to put lessons learned from a year – too many to count.
Q. Will we see anything different this year?
A. The team will be different in many ways, but the most evident will be their willingness to be together.
Q. How would you characterize your team’s speed?
A. We are going to have speed where it counts and a tough time in other places.
I see our success coming from the willingness of our team to play together, learn, and work off the feelings from last season. Competing every day in practice and on Fridays are the goals for this year’s team. I feel with great leadership from some key seniors, such as Landon Wallace, Malachi Wise, and Christian Turner, along with young leaders in Parrish Pacetti and Bradley Woodall, we can get through any adversity.
