What Rose Hill does well: “I think we’re doing really well on defense. We lost a great quarterback last year and we’ll have to step up on offense, but we’re coming along really good. We lost key players on defense, but the upperclassmen have worked harder and the underclassmen are trying to improve.

What has to improve: “We have to come together as a team. We are good, but we have to get better. We can’t blame something on one person. It’s a whole team effort.”
