Team strengths: “Several returners have two or three years of experience. We had a good off-season in the weight room.’’
Team concerns: “We have a lack of numbers and are inexperienced in some important areas.’’
Coach’s comment: “Our numbers are not good, but we are doing everything possible to play everyone on just one side of the ball. We are counting on some freshmen and sophomores to play early and in some key areas. Several weeks last year, we were close at halftime and had some chances to win in the fourth quarter. Hopefully we will be better at finishing this year.’’
