KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Austin-East should be a much-improved football team this season.
The Roadrunners struggled in head coach Jeff Phillips' first year, posting a 1-9 record.
But with 16 total starters back (8 on offense, 8 on defense) A-E has plenty of experience returning to improve on that mark.
