  • 6 offensive and 6 defensive starters returning
  • Leaders are emerging
  • Excited about opening with ND- it has aided in the development of the football team because of the anticipation
  • Ryan Kerrigan is is a leader who's play speaks for itself. We expect Ryan to continue leading this team as we progress.
  • Ball Security is the biggest focus for the team this off season, along with tackling on the defensive side of the ball.
  • (Quarterback) has great arm strength, decision making and the fact that he runs a 4.5 or 4.6, and from that stand point is a great asset to the offense.
  • Ralph Bolden will have to wait and see how things go with the recovery. There is a possibility we can get him back this year, but that's not a certainty. (Altreat Reverse?) has all the tools as well- good runner, over 200 lbs, and catches the ball very well out of the backfield. Bolden does have a redshirt year to use, should the team choose to.
  • Justin Siller is back on the team. 6’4” 220 and listed as a WR, but he could play at any skill position on the offensive side of the ball.
  • How did the OSU game help in recruiting?
  • Big wins against U of M and Ohio State helped. It’s an indication of where the Program is going.
