Q: What are your biggest reasons for optimism?
A: Our roster is full of good kids, and they love the game.
Q: What will keep you up at night?
A: Not having very much speed.
Q: What can you build on from last year?
A: We’ll continue to work to finish games strong.
Q: Any lessons learned from last year?
A: We’re only going to put people on the field who want to do right.
Q: Will we see anything different this year?
A: Nothing too different, but we’ll throw a little more this year.
