"Guys are pumped every day, but we need a little bit more effort from some of the teammates," senior defensive end Kenneth Turner said. "I know I've got to be a big leader this year, especially with the young guys — show them the right direction."

Turner also helps out on the offensive line, which will have five new starters.

"We've still got some big guys and we're working hard," Turner said. "We're gonna be looking good."

The Bobcats will count heavily on the experience of senior receiver/defensive back Stevo Henderson, who medaled in the 100 meters at the Class 4A state track meet, and sophomore Kenneth Davis, a linebacker and running back who earned playing time as a freshman.

And the offense is in the hands of Darion Bogus, a 5-foot-7 sophomore who has taken over early in camp.

"He's got a nice arm, good feet. He's a good quarterback," said Davis, who played with Bogus in middle school. "I expected him to come out and do what he's supposed to do, lead the team. And he's doing it."
