Q&A with Coach Jeremy Bosken

Coach Jeremy BoskenQ: How would you characterize this year’s team?

A: We have some position groups that are very mature and have three- to four-year starters at them, and we also have position groups that are very young, with battles to be first-year starters. 

Q: What will be the keys to your success?

A: Our offensive and defensive lines!

Q: Who will be your key leaders on the team?

A: Brody Grant (OL/DL), Caden Johnson (WR/DB), Jabari Johnson (OL/DL), Karson Gay (TE/DL), Colbe Haddox (OL/DL), Matthew Stone (RB/LB), Malachi Powell (WR/DB), Carter Wamack (WR/DB), and Perry Griffin (OL/DL).

Q: What are your biggest reasons for optimism?

A: Lots of talent and experience on the offensive and defensive lines.

Q: What will keep you up at night?

A: We have a three-way QB competition, with three very talented and different young men: Mason Ratchford, Jacob Hutcheson, and Houston Hicks.

Q: What can you build on from last year?

A: We had a great off-season in the weight room.

Q: Any lessons learned from last year?

A: We need team camp and scrimmages.

Q: Will we see anything different this year?

A: We only graduated seven seniors, so we’re bringing back the majority of the team.

Q: How would you characterize your team’s speed?

A: I’d say team speed is average, and our team size is above average.
