2020 Outlook

We are a young team, and that is going to allow for some underclassmen to step up and be contributors from Day 1. We will be able to put some speed and athleticism on the field and hopefully we can control the pace of games that way. If we can find a way to bring that speed and high level of physicality together, I think we have the chance to surprise some people. We have some tough opponents on the schedule to start off the year, which will be a great opportunity for us to figure out what kind of team we are going to be early on. Our goal is to find ways to compete with those programs and learn what it takes to get to that point ourselves. Anytime you have a coaching change there is bound to be some growing pains. One of our biggest keys to success this year is going to be getting the guys to buy-In. If we can get our guys bought in to a new system and a new culture, then I think we can surprise some people this year. I feel confident with the group of leaders that we have and their abilities to set the expectations for our young guys and keep things moving in the right direction.
