A. The offensive and defensive lines.
Q. Any lessons learned from last year?
A. It’s very important to keep the community involved in the program.
Q. Will we see anything different this year?
A. Absolutely, more so on the defensive side than the offensive.
Q. How would you characterize your team’s speed?
A. There’s great speed with the whole team, but the line is surprisingly quick.
We have a large target on our backs. It is not going to be easy filling the shoes of great players and coaches, but the team and staff in place now have good chemistry, work ethic, and knowledge of the game. I am looking forward to this season and what kind of dividends we will collect for the hard work we have put in.
