We have a strong upper class group with some guys back after missing last year due to injuries. Our freshmen and sophomores are going to play a big role and will have plenty of opportunities to step up and contribute. We look forward to the challenges ahead of us and I am excited to see us compete and progress every day throughout the 2020 season. #Rollcats.”
