Team strengths: “We have a bunch of skill athletes from a junior varsity team that won eight games last year. Offensively, Beckett and Allen are a pretty good one-two punch in our backfield. Defensively, our line is definitely our strength. Harrison is a four-year starter and Gambrell is a three-year starter.’’

Team concerns: “We must shake off last season. Our depth is still not great so we must avoid the injury bug again.’’

Coach’s comment: “We have a chance to be a very competitive team  this fall.’’
