Coach Illum says this about the offense:
With 8 of 11 starters returning off of a very explosive offense, we are really excited to get back out on the field and see our growth continue. 6 of those 8 were all-conference guys in 2012 and the reigning HAAC Offensive Player of the Year leads that group. We expect to be a lot of fun to watch in 2013.
Coach Illum says this about the defense:
We know that we will score points and we know that we will continue to be a pressure-based defense but we have a whole lot of new faces on D and many unknowns there going into the fall. For us to be a great team, this young defense will need to grow up quickly.
