Wes Hullinger on his team

What Conway Springs does well: “We’ve always been a good running team, but I think, we’re going to try some new things, maybe passing a lot. We’ll spread the ball a little bit.”

What has to improve: “I think our defense will have to get a lot better. We’re young there, so we’ll have to get a lot more aggressive.”
