1.What was your number one goal entering fall practice and have you accomplished that?
Our number one goal was to get the base packages of our offense and defense installed. We’re making changes on both sides of the ball to what we are running and we’ve been working since May to get it installed and to have the kids understand what we are trying to do. We feel comfortable with where we are at, obviously we can always get better, but we’re ready to start moving forward.
2. Who was an individual that has stood out to you so far?
We have some returners that have looked good, but our biggest takeaway isn’t individual success. Our biggest takeaway so far from the first week and a half of August camp is that we are playing more like a team and less like a group of individuals. Defense is ahead of the the offense at the moment, but we’re okay with where we are.
3. What has left you a little concerned so far?
I’m sure every coach says this, but depth is our biggest concern. We have, what seems like, more kids playing both ways and we’re constantly trying to build depth.
4. Where do you think you need to make the most progress?
We need to make the most progress on the offensive line. We are trying to run the ball more this year and we’re going to have to lean on them. We have a freshman and two sophomores playing on the OL at the moment and they need to grow up in a hurry.
5. What was one area or position you feel like you’ve solidified so far?
Our defensive secondary had to replace a lot of parts from last year and they seem to be making a lot of progress. They are communicating well and flying around. They have been fun to watch and seem to be getting better daily.
