“We were pleasantly surprised by several of our young guys. Going into this season we know that our success will depend largely on some of our sophomores playing well. Many of those guys did and showed a lot of promise. We also may have a little more depth than we originally thought. Although we're excited and optimistic we know we have a long way to go before August.”

Coach Parker said that the upcoming season will be one of the toughest schedules they will have played in a while, and it means they have to have a great summer and continue to bring a lot of the guys along.
