Gators looking for boost into summer

Last year’s deep sophomore and freshmen classes are now the sophomores and juniors that will lead the team.

“We returned quite a few but we will still be young,” Kizziah said. “We also have some real good athletes.

“A real key is that we are returning our offensive line. That will be important.”

The Gators, who suffered through a tough three-win season last year, will also have quarterback Rashard Rainie, a dual-threat, back at quarterback.

Javar Hill, the tight end last year, will serve as the feature running back in the Wing offense.

“I am still looking for another running back,” Kizziah said. “Javar will get most of the carries and Rashard is dangerous on any down, but I would like to have another running back to take some carries.

“We have some good size and the kids come off the ball real well. We are going to just run it at them.”
