Head Coach Chris Hatcher answered the media’s questions at a press conference Monday. Here are a few of his main points.
“They’re all winnable games. There’s only one game, and that’s Union. When that one’s over we’ll worry about the next one. That’s a non-issue whatsoever.”
“The thing about us, the way we play is we do what we do – in all three phases of the game. Keep it as simple as you can no matter who you are playing. So we’ll go out there and be ready for just about anything.”
“They’re very inexperienced as a whole group. Our biggest concern is the lack of depth on the defensive line. We got six right now that’ll play Thursday night. That’s two deep, and then the backups are all pretty much freshmen. I think they are good freshmen, but well, freshmen are still freshmen.”
“The thing about football is you spend all year training in the weight room, you don’t get as many practices as the others sports do as far as individual skill work. I mean, it’s just weight room work, you can’t ever have a ball with ‘em except for 15 days in the spring and then 29 days leading up to the first ball game. It all leads up to the season; we are guaranteed 12 games in 13 weeks, this being game one. So we are really excited about suiting up, seeing what type of team we got this upcoming year.”
