Q. What can you build on from last year?

A. We think our competitive nature really showed throughout the season. We will continue to build on competing play-to-play.

Q. Will we see anything different this year?

Coach’s View

Between our non-region and region schedule, every game will be a dogfight. Fortunately, our guys have been in those types of games before. Week in and week out we play some very tough teams. We are playing a few AAAA teams to prepare us for a tough region. If we can compete in those games, we should be prepared for our region.
