- Major Players
Darius McClinton, Sr., linebacker — After putting together an impressive junior season and being named all-district defensive MVP, McClinton is the undeniable leader for the unit. Not only will he be expected to produce on the field, he must become an extension of the coaching staff and guide the inexperienced players.
Chans Colbert, Sr., running back — Colbert has some extremely large shoes to fill as he attempts to replace some of the rushing production lost due to the departures of Orlando Thomas and Brandon Hamilton. He shared all-district first-team honors with Thomas and Hamilton last season after running for more than 500 yards.
Israel Hamm, Sr., offensive lineman — Nothing helps an offense develop quicker than a strong offensive line, and Hamm will be crucial to the unit’s success. Standing 5-7 and weighing 270 pounds, Hamm will be asked to open many holes for running backs and improve at pass protection as the Bulldawgs look to deliver a more balanced offensive attack.
- Team Effort
“We've got a good team effort going right now and it is pretty balanced. ... I think they are going to be OK. They seem to be working well together, but right now, it is all in a teaching phase.”
- Jack Welch, Copperas Cove football coach
