Strengths:  A good number of our players have played together previously which helps with field transition and communication. In addition, we have some speed and young talent to add to the field as well.

Question marks:  We are still rotating a variety of players in a few positions in an attempt to mold together the offense and defense so there is an even flow on the field.

Outlook:  “The coaching staff is excited about the upcoming year. Although last year was a little bit of a struggle with players new to varsity and in unfamiliar positions, we still were determined to make playoffs and are after the same goal if not more this year. It's always great to have returning players and new ones eager to jump in as well. We see the potential to succeed and look forward to the competition.”
