Buena Vista football coach Jay Anderson hopes the momentum his team built at the end of 2007 can carry over to this season. The Beavers closed out the season by winning three of their last four games to finish with a record of 5-5.
Anderson says they ended the year in a positive way and have been trying to build on that in the preseason as they prepare for the season opener. There are some key holes to fill on offense but Anderson is banking on a defense that has a number of veterans returning in the secondary and line.
Anderson says a key this year will be limiting mistakes. He says they are looking at winning the turnover battle while improving the running game. Anderson says the games in the Iowa Conference come down to turnovers, special teams and who makes the fewest mental mistakes. Buena Vista opens at home of September 6th against Wisconsin-Platteville.
