MUSTANG — There's a different feel in the air at Mustang, and that's probably a good thing.
There's a new quarterback running the offense and a new coordinator overseeing the defense as the Broncos try to erase the feeling of last year's three-win season.
Junior Frankie Edwards steps into the starting quarterback role he held at the end of last season. But this year will be different for him, as the offense is more built to suit his skill set.
“We're gonna do a lot more diverse stuff — stuff that fits my abilities,” Edwards said. “It's gonna be a fun style of offense.
“The high school starting experience, you've got to get used to that to be successful. Last year warmed me up to what it's gonna be like this year. I'll just do what I can do this year.”
The offense will use multiple formations and spread the field, as you expect from the Broncos. But Edwards' legs bring a weapon Mustang hasn't had in a few years.
At running back, Mustang will use multiple backs and multiple sets to keep defenses off balance. Cory Irwins could see time at running back, but the coaching staff would also like to protect him because he's coming off a bad shoulder injury and is vital to the defense at linebacker.
Receiver is a position of wealth, with experienced players like Dakota Warrington, Colton Hadlock, Travis Mitchell and Joey Snodgrass in the lineup.
