Top 5 Recruits:
Coach Winter says this about the offense:
We are excited about our second year in Coach White’s system and want to build off of the improvements we made in 2012. We also are very aware that we have plenty of work to do to become an elite offense. We desperately need some explosive capabilities as an offense outside of our quarterback and need to become more consistent in our passing game.
Coach Winter says this about the defense:
We have a nice nucleus on defense and our longest and most athletic group in my time here. I'm Really excited with how this group meshed in the spring and the development of our young guys. I thought after our first three games last fall, our defense really started to gel and grow as a unit. We expect big things out of this group this fall.
