2023 Defensive Outlook: We have experience returning at all three levels of our defense. The keys to our defense is to play fast and physical. To be successful this year we will 11 guys flying to the ball each play.

2023 Special Teams Outlook: We have to replace our primary kicker and punter from 2022. To be successful on special teams in 2023 we will need to stick to assignments, and fly around and be aggressive.
