Coach Illum says this about the offense:
We graduated three all-conference receivers last year (two first-teamers) so that leaves us with a pretty significant unknown in our passing game, but we are very mature up front and in the backfield and I think we should be able to establish ourselves as a better rushing attack than we’ve been in recent years.
Coach Illum says this about the defense:
Coming off of a very good defensive season, we are now replacing a good many of those starters and so how we will respond to that change will be the big challenge. We have some very good players but a lot of youth, particularly in the secondary. We will need to find ways to win the field position and turnover battles while this defense grows up.
