Alex Becker on his team

What Garden Plain does well: “It’s going to be our defensive line putting in work. Jonah is a big part of it. He’s a good leader out there, and he makes all those other guys work and do extra.”

What has to improve: “Our running backs haven’t been running as hard as we want them to the last couple years. We want them to get into line and run as hard as they can.”
