Yukon building around depth at skilled positions
The Yukon offense will have a new feel this season, though the look should be fairly similar to the spread offense that took the Millers to three straight playoff appearances.
The Millers lost four starting offensive linemen and their quarterback, but a strong group of returning receivers and running backs hope to carry the load as the group gels.
“It’s on us,” said receiver Codey Sanchez. “We love doing it, too. We love leading. The offense is pretty much the same, and we have good depth at running back, so we should be able to run the ball better, too.”
Head coach Todd Wilson shifted his own responsibility to defense, filling the void of Steve Chard, who left to become Enid’s head coach. Wilson is installing a simplified 4-3 defense.
“I feel like we’re a lot more confident, and we fly around,” linebacker Blake Biggs said. “Changing to the 4-3, it’s a lot more simple. Just fly around and play football.”
