There is plenty of experience on the field for the Drake football team this spring. Fourteen starters are back from last year’s team that finished 8-3 overall and third place in the Pioneer Football League race with a 6-2 mark.
Drake coach Chris Creighton says they feel excited, not about what they accomplished, but about the future and the potential of the program. Creighton says the transition to his staff is now gone and they feel comfortable with each other.
He says one area of concern is the offensive line where three starters need to be replaced. Creighton says they have some talented, but young guys who will battle for those jobs. They will also be young at the receiver and secondary positions.
Creighton says there are a number of areas with experience, as the defensive front remains intact, the runningbacks and quarterbacks are coming back. The Bulldogs will have an intrasquad game on April 17th.
