Third-year head coach Keith Woods said the next step is to get some continuity from that success but they will have to do it with a less experienced team this season.

“We will have about four seniors on this team; we will have about 32 players before the freshmen get here,” said Woods. “But, we have some young talented kids and I think people will get to see that as the season progresses. If we have a season, they will see there are some young kids at Mentorship Academy that can really play.”

“For this year, I just see us going farther,” added senior wide receiver and cornerback Ian Bell. “We just have to keep working harder, keep grinding. The goal is to outwork everybody else.”

One of the four seniors is running back Donovan McCray, who is coming off a 1,100-yard rushing season. McCray will have a new offensive tackle to help him out in 6-foot-6, 280-pound junior Cameron Jackson, who is entering his first season playing varsity ball.
