RIGHT NOW I LIKE …
We have many returning players with all league honors and some without that have stepped up their game so to speak. We have shown we can score early in the preseason and our defensive gaps have been filled.
RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE …
11 newcomers to the roster means there is lots of room for improvement. Getting these new guys comfortable with the pitch and the fast game-play won’t come easy, however we will get there.
After winning league last year and maintaining many starters, I would like to think that we are among the favorites to take it again. The National Division has many upperclassmen throughout and the skill level growth from a sophomore to junior can be monstrous. It could be anyone’s title to take.
