The lone sophomore returnee to varsity is Casey Westerfield.
Coach Lawler expects Quintin McGehee, Wyatt Lear and Mason Trible to contribute to the Broncos this season along with the returning players.
“Several young players from last season got the opportunity to play in varstiy games due to an abnormal amount of injuries sustained last season,” said Lawler.
Even though the Broncos were young last year, they were able to earn some valuable varsity experience.
“We have a very talented group of of freshmen coming in this year that will help develop our team into a competitive team,” said Lawler. “We will look to improve each week and get better as the season progresses.”
