LOUDON, Tenn. (WVLT) -- After making the playoffs six straight years, there was no postseason game for the Loudon Redskins in 2011.
Now in his eleventh season at Loudon, head coach Jeff Harig doesn't expect to play just ten games this year. He's confident this year's squad is a postseason one.
Experience is a big reason for that. Harig's Redskins return nine starters on both offense and defense.
"At the end of last year, we lost two games in the last minute and you just knew that next year those plays would go our way," Harig said.
Harig just had to endure thru a 4-6 season first.
"It's hard to do, but you gotta live with the bad, knowing the good will return. We're looking forward to it, we have lots of experience coming back, and this year's gonna be a lot better."
"You can tell things are clicking in people's heads," defensive back Jake Mourfield said. "The ball is kind of rolling. People are having the same thoughts, everyone is on the same page."
Loudon opens up the year August 23 at Lenoir City. The game will be broadcast on MyVLT2 as part of Rivalry Thursday.
