ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM, SEASON

I like the attitude change that the players have taken on this season. We have a much different locker room than I have seen in the past two seasons. We have been blessed to add two very good assistants to our coaching staff in defensive coordinator Jeff Vanscoy and offensive line coach Steve Olds. Mark Scovanner has taken over the defensive line, while Bryan Floyd and Clyde Snow will coach both sides of the football.
