Sports 2-A-Days: Glen Oaks
BATON ROUGE - The Glen Oaks football team suffered through a rough season last year, but Panthers head coach Donald Clark believes his young team can turn things around in 2014.
The Panthers went 3-6 last year, 0-6 in Class 3A district 7, and have just four returning starters on both sides of the ball.
Still, Clark says the team has speed at wide receiver and defensive back, and says those skill players have the experience needed to lead the team.
"In the secondary, at receiver, I think we've got to build around those guys and get them going and get them to pick up where we left off at," Clark said.
"I think the other thing we have to do is build some depth on the line, because we're in a physical district. We get pounded. The thing is going to be to stay healthy and keep fighting."
