After spending two seasons as an assistant on the staff Price who is also the school’s athletic director feels he’s up for the task.

It’s just been a real big blessing, I mean you know I talked with my family got guidance from my wife and you know we prayed about it a lot and I just thought this was the right move at the right time

Robert Price

Price has limited numbers with only 14 players on the roster. But sophomore Joey Baker returns at running back he ran for more than 300 yards in the Wildcats two games last year, defensively you see him at the end.

Freshman Caden Myers will take over at quarterback, coach Price says he’s very mature, he’ll also play in the defensive backfield.

Seniors Jasop Spragg and Tobin McEldowney will play receiver and DB along with junior Parker Higgins.

Sophomore Bryson Stackpole returns at center and d tackle.

Junior Hunter Fowlkes returns to the oline and inside linebacker.

Senior Gavin Lewis is an offensive lineman and inside linebacker while fellow senior Joey Smith returns to the offensive and defensive lines.

We have a lot of guys that are like you said hybrid I don’t feel like one person can specificly be one positon I think that I’m pretty fortunate in the fact that I can just move these guys around

Robert Price
