While finishing 0-10 last year may not have been the way Head Coach John Blake envisioned the season going, he believes that the experience his young players had in 2012 will make all the difference this fall. Blake explained that, â€śOne of our issues last year was we were playing a lot of young kids. But weâ€™re athletic, and these kids have all gotten a year older, a little faster, and a little stronger. Weâ€™re looking pretty good, I think right nowâ€ť.
John Blake recently caught up with us on The Best Seat in the House to discuss the upcoming football season and the changes this STAB program is making. As these players continue to grow and improve, Blake tells us, â€śWeâ€™re gonna move them around and let our athletes be athletesâ€ť. By utilizing each playerâ€™s talents as best they can, Blake hopes to put together a starting lineup that can kick off the season on a high note, and keep on rolling.
