Muscle Connection H.S. Football Preview: Beaver Local Beavers

Posted: Updated:

The Beaver Local football team last had a winning season in 2014, finishing 6-4. 

New Coach Mike McKenzie wants to change that with his top three running backs returning.

"We're counting on Mike Glendenning, Garrett Givens and Tory Callie. They all ran the ball last year and they'll carry the load," said McKenzie who previously coached at Weir, West Virginia.

Quarterback Luke Call is back after missing last year with an ACL tear. The senior started two years ago.

The Beavers return eight on defense and are under the direction of former Campbell Coach Bruce Palmer. "Zack Thomas is back as a tackle, Andrew Gibson is one of the offensive linemen along with Parker Summers," said McKenzie who also mentioned Chad Mayes returning on the line.
     
McKenzie admits the Beavers are going to line up in the shotgun but said they'd like to run the ball with the experience they return at that position.
