HARRODSBURG - Harrodsburg coach Terry Yeast expects his young team to get better as the season progresses starting with the season opener here Friday at Alvis Johnson Field against Western Hills.
A trio of sophomores -Brandon Ford, Cory Jackson and Freeman Edwards - will carry the offensive load for the Pioneers.
"They are young and will get a lot of experience quick," said Yeast, who begins his second season at Harrodsburg. "The more reps they get, however, the better they will get. As the season gets longer, they will be able to make the plays that we need."
Edwards will run the offense from the quarterback slot.
"He has come a long way from his freshmen year," Yeast said.
"The biggest thing he has going for him this year is he has gotten all of the reps in practice. That's a big plus. He's starting to understand coverage a little better. That's important because we have to be able to throw the ball as well as run it. The more balanced we are, the better team we can become."
