Austin College Football Team Preps For Season

Posted: Updated:

SHERMAN, TX--College football practice is underway in Sherman this weekend. 
The Austin College Kangaroos hit the field this afternoon. They're optimistic for this upcoming season.

The head coach says that they have 97 players--the largest roster that he's seen in years. The team has all new coaches but one this year--five of which have coached at Austin College before.

"It's going to be a season of change. We got a bunch of new guys, a bunch of new coaches, we're changing schemes on offense and defense, so it's going to be good, and it's going to take a while to get the new stuff down, but we're excited," Loren Dawson, Austin College Football Head Coach.

The new staff plans on using different offense and defense strategies than they've done in the past. Dawson says that he's got a line of seniors that are ready to take on the season.
