Coaches Thoughts: “We were a very young team last year and paid the price, this year will be a different story. We have not only doubled our roster and will have a JV team this season. Our biggest weakness last season along with inexperience was size and strength. We have fixed that issue this off-season with the commitment level and training the kids have put into the program.”
Coaches Outlook: “I look for a tough LCAA schedule, but I see our team competing every week as we continue to grow this program in a positive direction.”
FNV Thoughts: Look for Mason to compete every week in what is going to be a daunting LCAA schedule. The winds of change are swirling around Mason Eagle Drive. As the year goes on, I expect Mason to get better and better. Is this the year we see the Eagles put their stamp on the league or are we still a year away?
