THOMAS GRAHAM ON HIS TEAM

What Andover Central does well: “I think we have good chemistry. All the guys really like each other.… We work hard. We don’t just have a bunch of guys out there — ‘where’s he been all offseason?’ We’re in the weight room, working hard together.”

What has to improve: “Our offense and defense is one on the line — we have to start there. Our line will have to be huge with Jordan back there, with Peyton. They are the start of everything for us.”
