Canien Burnett on his team

What East does well: “Definitely our passing game. At the Newton camp, our offensive line was holding up so that we can drop back and throw it. The running looks more efficient, and we were able to open up holes at the Newton camp.”

What has to improve: “Probably just leadership in general. We don’t have a lot of that this year. There’s no sense of direction without leadership.”
