“Our defense last year was extremely young, but the good news is that we have a lot of starters back with experience. Our linebacker corps is greatly improved. We will go 4-3 on defense. We average 260 pounds across the offensive front line. We expect to be a run-dominant team that can grind it out and eat up the clock. The offense is really focused.
“We’re very excited because it’s no longer new players who aren’t used to varsity experience. They know what to expect on Friday nights; they know the physicality and they know the speed. The confidence is there this year. Off-season training and teaching our culture has changed the atmosphere.
“We expect Friday nights to go more in our favor a lot more this year.” – Coach Grant Lewis
