"We only have 20 kids, so we won't have a lot of depth," he said. "But we've got some experience and we're looking forward to the season."
Bowlegs relying on work ethic, teamwork
Bowlegs doesn't plan to win games on the back of a lot of speed or a bruising ground game. What they do plan to do is play harder than their opponents.
"We're going to have to outwork people," Bowlegs coach Scott Douthit said. "We're going to have to buckle down and just do things the right way to win."
While the team doesn't have a lot of depth, Douthit said the players he has work well together.
"In the past, we've had some kids who were kind of out there for themselves," he said. "The ones I've got now all play well together and in the system. I've got a good core of a team."
