Knoxville,Tenn (WVLT)-- We conclude our our Countdown to Kickoff series with a trip up 11w to check in on the Grainger Grizzlies.The Grizzlies are looking to improve upon last year's 3-7 record..
That will be easier said than done in a tough district. But head coach Mark Mriscoe feels that this team is up to the challenge, thanks to experience gained over the last few years:
Mark Briscoe: "Most of them have started, this will be their 3rd year starting. One of them, this will be his fourth year starting. They've put the time in and we hope with their improvement and leadership in the offseason, we can improve upon our record from last year."
Chris Luttrell: "Experience is really important this year. We have a lot more this year than we've ever had this year since I've been here."
Grainger opens at home against Union County this Friday night.
