Spring Camp wrapped up nicely for us on Sunday. We had about an 80-play scrimmage in which all of our new recruits were able to take reps running our offense and defense in a full-go game day setting.

Here is his post… As it has been quite some time since my last blog post, quite a bit has happened within the team. We said goodbye to our seniors, handed out our awards and thanked our coaches at our year-end banquet, we began our off-season training and began the tedious recruitment process. Thankfully, we only lost five seniors to eligibility this year: Scott McHenry, Tyler O’Gorman, Hubert Buydens. Taylor Wallace and Cory Jones. However we run the risk of losing a couple | Full Article
