What Conway Springs does well: “We’re committed to being the most physical team anybody has to face all season and running the ball in the style we’re used to. We want to be big and physical with teams, to be the aggressors.”

What has to improve: “We have a lot of guys that aren’t necessarily inexperienced, but they haven’t been starters and haven’t had to be completely relied on before. Because they haven’t been starters you have to consider them unproven, but I think they’re ready to make a big impact.”
