DANSBY ON THE ROAD BACK
Carl Albert quarterback Dillan Dansby was finding his groove last year when he tore his ACL in a Week 3 win against Duncan. Forced to sit out the rest of the year, Dansby had been eager to get back out on the field. He got that chance this week as the Titans practiced for three days, and Dansby said he felt fine.
“It was great to be back out there,” Dansby said. “This is where it starts. We have a lot of guys gone that were great leaders, and now we need to step into those roles.”
The biggest obstacle will be on the offensive line, and coach Gary Rose knows that. Rose said only one starter is returning from last year.
