Coach Smith: Of course the big goal is to win! But some other goals are to execute all the little things so we can build and get better.
Titans: Even though you are a brand new team in the area, how much semi-pro experience are you bringing to the table?
Coach Smith: This is my 5th season of semi pro. I played for 2 years l. Then I was the defensive coordinator for another 2 before becoming the Head Coach.

Titans: Who are some key players the fans should be watching for?
Coach Smith: First key player is our quarterback Trevor Taylor he has led this offense to two previous championships and does a great job controlling the huddle. On the defensive side we are bringing back an elite pass rusher Shane Elliott who just has an act for sacking the quarterback.
