Coach’s Outlook

“There’s no easy week in the CVAC, top to bottom we are the toughest 2A conference in the state; The SEC of 2A”

“Our depth is in good shape, we just need to stay healthy”

“Defense will be our core leadership, the offense will be junior-heavy and ground & pound”

“This senior group has been with me for four years, a solid group that has been through the Covid, quarantines, and adversity. This is the group that can overcome the humps”

-Derrick Minor
