Allen offense looks to fill void of graduated players on first day or practice
Going into Allen's first day of practice there were a lot of key cogs from last season's championship team that were not there. Allen graduated wide receiver Olivet Pierce, running backs Marcus Ward and Jeff Harris and offensive lineman Brad North to name a few. Head coach
Tom Westerberg will be relying on back ups from last year and depth of the program to fill those voids.
"There's a bunch of guys in here that have playing experience, but maybe not at that position or maybe not as the starter," Westerberg said. "But a lot of them have experience so that's what we're driving on."
As one of the returning offensive starters, senior wide receiver Cole Carter believed that new players will step up for Allen.
"With our new guys in the Allen program we just expect them to step up, and they know they have to fill in some big shoes," Carter said.
