“For example, in 11-man, your cornerback is typically a cornerback; however, in eight-man, a cornerback is also an outside linebacker. He has to immediately read the play and cover the run or the pass, and sometimes do both.” Way said that with the program “graduating a high number of quality players” over the past few years, this year’s team will be in “building mode.” “I don’t like the term rebuilding,” he said. “But we will be installing an entirely new system, so everyone will be learning and we will have to learn in a hurry.” Way said that only one of the four current senior players is a returning starter. “Two others have played football in the past, but did not play last year, and one is a new student at the school,” he said. “I expect that these players will join in and help lead the team and set examples of how to do things the right way. We have a large number of younger players that will be looking, imitating and searching for this leadership.” Way said that he’s going to heavily focus on a motto he heard from Coastal Carolina Coach Joe Moglia. “He calls it BAM, which stands for ‘Be a Man,’” Way said. “This goes back to my philosophy of character building. Being a Man includes many Godly features, like respect, doing your task at hand, having and showing character no matter what the situations, and doing the right thing, even when no one else is looking.” Way said that the season will be a success, “if I can instill these characteristics in these young men.” The Saints start their season 7:30 p.m. Friday with a home game against Beaufort Academy.
