Coach’s comment: “I still think we’re pretty athletic,” Cumba said. “I don’t think we’re as athletic as we were in the past, but we still have some kids who can catch and run — some kids who can do things in open space. Our strength this year is going to lie up front though. We’re bigger than we’ve been in past years. Less experienced, but we’re much bigger. I think we’ll be good. I just don’t know how good.”
Footnotes: Stephen Hedberg, the Saints starting quarterback each of the last two seasons, will play for Phillips Andover Academy this season.
