Wooster Generals preview

Add This

League: Ohio Cardinal Conference.

Coach: Doug Haas, second season at Wooster and 11th overall.

Coach’s record: 47-55.

2012 record: 3-7.

Players to watch: Chandler Dawson, Sr. WR-DB; Brandon Defibaugh, Sr. LB; Michael Elliott, Sr. OL-DL; Adam Kotulock, Sr. WR-QB-LB; Connor Kubiak, Sr. WR; Ja’Vontae Lidge, Sr. WR-DB; Cy Morgan, Sr. OL-Dl; Ben Nolt, Sr. OL-LB; Cam Daugherty, Jr. QB.

Outlook: The Generals return three starters on defense and seven on offense, including junior quarterback Daugherty and four of five offensive linemen under coach Haas’ spread no-huddle offense. The Generals will look to avoid costly turnovers when games are close to being put away. On defense, the focus is on cutting down on big plays. “We need to make teams earn it against us,” Haas said. The Generals hope to build off success at the end of last season and carry it over into the new year. “Late in the year, I thought we really started to be more cohesive and gel as a group,” Haas said. “That chemistry started to exist there; that’s what we’re excited about.”
