Heritage Hall coach Andy Bogert hopes every day the rash of injuries his team went through last season does not reoccur this season.
With only 38 players on the roster, it’s important to stay healthy as the Chargers look to return to one of the top teams in Class 3A.
“If we keep everybody healthy, we’re going to be very competitive,” Bogert said. “We’ll find out the first three games with Casady, Clinton and Davis.”
The Chargers return plenty of talent, including Division I quarterback prospect Connor McGinnis who accounted for 28 touchdowns last season.
They also return two bruising running backs with Terrell Love (5 foot 9, 225 pounds) and Tevin McDaniel (6-0, 235), who will be aided by a more experienced offensive line led by Kaleb Gfeller and 6-foot-6, 370-pound junior Luther Harris.
“Offense is going to be a lot better,” Bogert said. “We’ve got a good size line. We’re going to play some sophomores and we might play a freshman, but they’re big and they can move and they’ve got great feet. We’re a lot more comfortable with the offensive line this year.”
