2017 Football
Here is to hoping MBB can break through and win the title this year in SC.

On the football front, looking ahead to next year. Some thoughts:

OL
WR
TE

I feel good about this group, experience and depth.

RB
Sounds like Funderburke has a ways to go to get back to form after his injury. Britt & Dunn with experience, TF Evans get a shot?

QB
Mitchell with all the hype, and certainly deserved, but what about Rotger, also with credentials, and a year in the system?


DB
Experience and depth at safety, as well as CB. Hayes back from injury, will he get a shot?

LB
Liked Jones last year, Atkins back, Dulaney has been sidelined with injuries a bit in his career. Depth an issue, Purviance get a shot?

DL
Stephens back, Murray looked solid, but he was banged up at season end. Campbell learning new position, but has physical tools. Move the RF DE's (Walter, Omelchenko) to DT? We have young DE's (Suarez and Johnson) that gained experience, we should have depth at DE.

Defense may have to set the tone early this year as a new QB breaks into the system. Young guys played a lot last year, and they got better
(ignore Towson game) as the season progressed. I expect the defense
to look better next year. Key will be depth and growth at DT and LB to slow run heavy teams, and get better pursuit off the ends. QB's like Schor and Lauretta are surgical when given time to throw.

Health P & PK would be nice as well.

RE: 2017 Football
All great questions.

This spring/summer is an important time for these positions. Finding the answers to these questions will be the key to the 2017 season. That and our experienced groups performing to their potential.

Let's hope that there was 100% commitment from our players this winter. We are young at some critical positions. The off season is a time for them to grow in to their roles.

Just got back from the 'Burg, as I was picking up 8th graders from the Model UN sessions. Parked at Bryan, and as luck would happen, Zable was open as some track guys were doing some training. Walked out on the field, stood at the fifty and looked all around. Good way to get pumped up.

Hunter Windmuller sure showed the potential prior to injury plagued senior year.

I agree, if kickers are included he should give it a shot.
