Team strengths: Quarterback-receiver combination and speed in the passing game. Strong senior leadership. Healthy competition within the team. Close-knit group on and off the field. Excellent coaching staff with many years of experience in successful programs. Staff is tight on and off field. Team has playoff experience. Recent alumni like Mark Gilbert, Isaiah Stallings, Paris Black and Jonathan Blackmon have set the standard and showed these young men how to practice and be a leader and accept responsibility. Team concerns: Depth. Staying healthy will be a major key, as we have to replace eight starters on offense and seven starters on defense. We are thin in young reserves and size on the defensive line. Coach's comment: We are excited to start play(ing) in a new conference (Patriot Athletic) and look forward to the rivalries of old being renewed. The 2017 Terry Sanford Bulldog football team looks forward to a challenging sched- ule with six new opponents. Terry Sanford Preview by EARL VAUGHAN JR.
