Coach’s comments: We return a lot of physical players. Most of our line on both sides of the ball has varsity experience. We feel like we can play pretty tough at the line, LB, and RB positions. We are inexperienced at the QB position and WR. We’ll need to learn to play with poise and consistency at those positions. We have a lot of capable players returning. The key to our success will be how quickly we mature at some key skill positions and how smart and hard we can play individually and collectively. As always the MAC presents some great challenges. We are eager to meet them.
