Hunter LaMunyon on his team

What Maize does well: “We’re going to play at a fast pace and I think that’s key with a spread offense. We have a lot of new guys that are going to be playing, but I think the system is still in place and we just have to find guys that will step up now.”

What has to improve: “We just have to find that leadership. I don’t know if it will take a couple of games or just a few practices, but it’s a little faster pace and we just have to get used to things and get in a rhythm and keep it going.”
