Redskins Looking To Repeat In 2014

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – For the first time in 25 years the sound of the SAC’s victory bell is filling Chambers Field, as the North Side Redskins hit the practice field on Monday.
The Redskins are coming off the program’s first conference title in a quarter century and must replace a number of key players off last year’s 7-4 team.
Head coach Ryan Hall is back for his fifth season leading the program. He says this year’s version of the Redskins may have the most team speed he’s seen during his tenure. He also cites the offensive line (which returns 3.5 starters) and the defensive backfield as areas of strength for this year’s team.
The Redskins must replace nine all-SAC performers that graduated off last year’s club, including linebacker D’Marcus Moon (who signed with Eastern Michigan) and RB/DB Nick Cook (Findlay). Also gone is quarterback Michael Lovett who transferred to a school in California during the spring semester. Last fall as a junior Lovett threw for 2,074 yards and ran for 1,057. Bishop Dwenger transfer Arion Nieves, a sophomore, is expected to start at QB for the Redskins this season. Nieves isn’t the only impact transfer for the Redskins – defensive back Randon Moore (Luers) and receiver Jordan Kindig (Concordia) should also help bolster the roster.
The Redskins will hold a Red and White scrimmage this Saturday at 10 a.m. They are set to host Carroll for a scrimmage game next Friday (August 15), and will open the regular season August 22 at home against Concordia.
