SNEADS, Fla. - Next up in 21 Teams in 21 Days - Sneads.
The Pirates have 13 seniors returning, 8 of them having been with Head Coach Bill Thomas since they were freshman. That same 8 have been varsity since they were sophomores.
The team is suiting up to have a strong offense. Senior Jalen Kenner was the leading receiver as a sophomore. He's coming back from a season sidelined due to a back injury. The navy and gold will be looking for him to be an impact-player on offense, along with Tyler Lawrence, who was the leading receiver last season.
Under center, senior Matt Thomas is back for his third year at starting quarterback, after losing half of last year due to injury. He had shoulder surgery in the offseason, and Coach Thomas says he's currently at about 85%.
"We want to make sure we never beat ourselves. We want to play great defense, good in the special teams, never turn the ball over, and play good, fundamental, disciplined defense," said Coach Thomas.
