With a quarterback who is drawing Division I recruiting interest and a receiver group that can rival any in the state, the Mustang offense is looking to put some points on the board this fall.

Quarterback Chandler Garrett took over as the starter in the middle of last season, giving him valuable experience heading into his junior year. But like his coach, Garrett is far more comfortable this preseason than he was last.

“He has exceeded some of our expectations in camp, with how much stronger he is, how the ball is coming off his hand much better, how he’s making his decisions quicker,” Dombek said. “It’s what you would expect from a returning starter and a guy who feels more comfortable. But he’s also taking more of a leadership role, and doing a really good job.”

Receiver is the deepest position on the team, with as many as nine players capable of making plays.
