What are the keys to a successful season? We are coming off the best season at Florence/Henry since 2008. We need to build off that and raise the bar this season. We need to fill a couple spots this off season and develop a little depth on both sides of the football. We need to stay healthy and rely on our veterans for leadership.What do you like best about your team? I like best that we have five starters coming back on both sides of the football and most of those starters have been starting for 2-3 years already. I feel like we have people in place that can step up and replace the outgoing seniors. The athletes that we are looking at stepping into a starting role added depth to our team last year and received a significant amount of varsity time. Our team is hungry, and we are ready to show our talents on the field. Our defense carried us last year and we have a lot of returners in that unit and we look to be a bigger force this year.
What are your biggest challenges for the 2020 season? Our biggest challenges come from our lack of depth at certain positions. We need to stay healthy and have some underclassman step up into the role of adding depth for our team. Our offense struggled in big games last year. This year we are going to look to fine tune the offense to compliment the defense and win more games.
Who are your toughest opponents this year? Deuel and Hamlin made playoff runs in our class last year and I expect them to do the same this year. Britton-Hecla has been on top of our conference for the last three years so I expect that to be a tough game until we show we can knock them off that top spot
