Noteworthy News: This is GC’s third year back after missing a season (2009) due to levy failure and the Greyhounds expect to have better success after going 7-13 the last two years. The OL is seasoned with two three-year starters back in seniors John Davis (6-2, 270) and Brandon Glover (6-4, 320). Senior TE Tyler Conner (6-2, 220) is a two-year starter. Junior OL Matt Brown (6-4, 260) will help anchor both lines. Senior OLB/RB Chad Moore (6-1, 190) heads the defense, while junior Jakub Sayres (5-10, 185) will impact all facets of the game. Keep tabs on sophomores Brandon Skeen (6-6, 260) and Ryan Grooms (6-2, 225).

Schedule: Brutal? GC opens with Hilliard Davidson and plays Westerville South in Week 3 before OCC-Ohio play starts.

Coaches Quotes: “We expect to be much better in 2012. I’m very proud of the way our kids are working right now. They seem hungry, I hope they keep that hunger to get them through.”
