Quote: “I’ve seen a lot of guys that definitely have a better grasp than they did last year at this time with it being their second year in the program and my second year as the head coach. We were a young team last year, but those kids are a year older and we have a good senior class of skill guys that played a lot last year.” — Davidson Academy coach Jonathan Quinn, whose team returns nine starters on both sides of the ball.
