“The nice thing we have with our program right now is we don’t have to rebuild, we’re just reloading,” coach Matt Burgbacher said. “We’ve got young guys out there who are ready and chomping at the bit to be that guy.”
Last year’s trip to the postseason was the first time in more than a decade for the Trojans.
“We’re just trying to have energy and positivity,” senior linebacker John Wehkamp said. “We’re investing in ourselves this season.”
