Caleb Hoyt on his team

What Trinity does well: “We have a very good line. These guys have been together for four years, and you can tell. They’re all returning starters.”

What has to improve: “Our defense needs work. I’m a defensive guy, and I hated getting into all those shootouts last year. We’ve got to improve our pass rush and make sure we don’t give up that many points again.”
