Coach’s comments: “We have a good returning nucleus. We have decent talent but there are a lot of question marks. We do have a lot of inexperience. A lot of guys will have to rise to the occasion. And that will be the key to our success. This group has adjusted to the culture of high expectations and that has carried over into their hard work during the summer.
“We have been able to hit the ground running. This is a hard-working group with a lot of potential. We have to make up for the experience factor quickly. Potentially we could have one of the best defensive lines in the state. Our conference is a meat grinder but we have the potential to be at the top again.”
