Bright outlook: Boyd looks to build off last year’s success

By Clay Corbett | Published Wednesday, August 7, 2013

Second-year head coach Brandon Hopkins has a lot of pieces already in place on the offensive side of the ball as he tries to build off last year’s playoff success.

Boyd hit the weight room Monday morning before hitting the field that evening, and with the success from 7-on-7 work things are coming together quickly for the Jackets.

Garrett Ragsdale looked sharp during the spring as he makes his move to starting quarterback. He will keep his duties at middle linebacker.

The county’s leading rusher, Fino Cardona, is back in the backfield along with an experienced receiving core.

“We’ve got a lot of good skill kids coming back,” Hopkins pointed out.

Look for some of the youngsters to get some touches, too. Sophomore Quaylynn Wells ran a 4.43 40-yard dash twice to open two-a-days.

“I’ve got to find a way to get him some touches,” Hopkins said.

The one question mark at offensive line is also on the upswing after the first day of workouts.

“We have some linemen and one potential starter that didn’t even play last year,” Hopkins said. “He’s coming in and looks good. There is a chance we could start four juniors on the offensive line.

“It has a chance to be one of the better lines we’ve had in the last few years.”

Boyd had 76 report on the first day of workouts.
