Last year's senior class full of college recruits has moved on, and now it's time to see who the next group of Millwood stars will be.

Coach Tony Henry knows the offense will look different with a new quarterback, new running back and several new receivers.

Senior Dametric Sanders — the younger brother of former Millwood star Cameron Sanders — has slid from receiver to quarterback, and he's handling the transition well.

“He's a very athletic kid who has seen some spot duty at quarterback the last couple years,” Henry said. “Right now, we're just trying to help him along, but with what we've seen so far, he's going to be fine. We're excited to see what he can do.

“We've got a whole new group of guys at receiver, and they've come in and worked their tails off all summer. They're focused.”

Marc Robinson and Larry Lambeth will be two Falcons who are intently watched on both sides of the ball. They'll both be in the rotation at running back, and they'll anchor the 4-4 defense at middle linebacker.

“Larry's going to have to be in more of a leadership role on both sides of the ball,” Henry said. “Marc is a guy that when he talks, the other guys listen.”
