Coach’s Quote: “We had quite a few seniors in the lineup in 2011. Some of them were returners, but many were in the lineup for the first time. It is not uncommon for seniors to wait their turn at DeSales. We have a lot of good younger players who are waiting for their opportunity to carry on the tradition!”

“We have to replace an entire defense, as well as RB Warren Ball (Ohio Sate) who accounted for nearly 90% of last year’s offensive numbers. Having our QB and our #No. 2 RB and WR returning is a good start to our offense. Our offensive line will feature several new faces.”

“Expectations at Desales do not change. The tradition that we represent was created long before any of us were around. We are expected to continue it and everyone involved with our program understands that. We also know it is a huge challenge, but its one we look forward to!”
