Coach’s summary comments about this season: We’re young and excited. We will play our typical hard nosed style. Kids have been working hard, playing hard. They fly around. Marquise Wall is an inside linebacker and a fullback. He’ll run a little one-back when we want to hammer. We’re not particularly big in the offensive line. You can’t turn the ball over. You have to get possessions and keep possessions. Turn it over on your own terms with the punting game. Those are things that will kill you if you’re on the wrong side of the turnover ratio. We’ve had pretty good ball security though.
