Coach’s Comment: “We have a lot of experience coming back in the skill positions on offense as well as our linebackers and defensive backs. We will need to develop a young group up front on both sides of the ball in a short preseason, which will be a challenge.  Overall, we have a great group of hardworking kids that we are really looking forward to working with.”
