BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Wednesday night was team preview No. 49 for Sportsline Summer Camp and the crew traveled just down the road, where Capitol is under new leadership and hoping to turn the program in the right direction.
It was tough sledding last season for the Lions. They couldn't get in the win column but they're moving on from that under first-year head coach Dorsett Buckels.

The group has been hard at work this summer in the weight room, looking to implement a new culture and philosophy as this senior class hopes to set the tone for a winning trajectory.
"Well, my mindset for the season is we have to be disciplined," said Buckels. "We stress that as coaches all the time. The kids need to be disciplined … in shape and disciplined so that's what we stress all the time here."
"This mindset this year is to basically improve," added senior defensive end Zairion Anderson. "Do better than last year, come together as a team, work harder, and like coach always says, have beaucoup enthusiasm."
