Last year Bobby Martin took over as head coach at William Fleming following a string of success at GW Danville.
Now in year number two, he hopes the team can take another step behind some players who got plenty of experience a year ago.
“We've got some good senior leadership coming back. I think the o-line is going to be a focal point. We've got some good skill people,” Martin said. “We've just got to build some depth and that's our biggest weakness. We need more depth. They are way ahead of where they were last year and I don't have to tell them the same thing ten times. They got it. So our offensive line, our skill set is good. We just need some depth.”
Fleming started last season 2-0 before dropping six straight, finishing the year with a 3-7 record, which was an improvement of two wins from the season before.
Now the Colonels aim to take it one step farther, hoping to make the playoffs for the first time since 2009.
“I want the guys to win a state championship. Unless somebody says you're crazy for saying that, but we have worked hard enough that if they stay together and keep working they have a chance to win a state championship,” Martin said.
