What Kapaun does well: "We’re looking to run the football. We’re trying to look to returning to out-toughing people, and a lot of that starts in the weight room. We changed our workout this summer to more conditioning so we can out-tough people and outlast people."

What has to improve: "It’s just fine-tuning the little things. We definitely have the players, it’s just kind of coming together. It’s the little things — we talk about special teams — that’s going to win and lose football games."
