“We have 40 to 45 kids for each practice, and that is a huge jump over past years. We lost key players, but we had freshmen and sophomores who had to play a lot of football last year so they are ready to pick up where they left off. Our quarterback and receivers have worked hard together.
“Our defense will be young and fast with four up front instead of three. Our challenge will be our secondary with two freshmen and two sophomores.
“ When last season was over everyone was excited about this year. Going into our first game against Gary Roosevelt, we will be light years ahead of last year in our preparation.” – Coach Robert Oakman
