BROCK — At most 3A schools the loss of 17 lettermen and more than half of your starters generally brings up the “R” word — rebuilding.
At Brock, however, the “R” word is often reloading and that is expected to be the case in 2022, despite heavy graduation losses.
“We’re excited for the guys we have returning,” said second-year coach Billy Mathis, who guided the Eagles to a 15-1 record and a trip to the Class 3A DI state title game in his inaugural season last year. “We’ll miss the guys who left, but that’s the beauty of what you do during the offseason and getting guys their reps on JV.
“That’s one of the benefits of going deep into the playoffs. The guys get a lot of extra practices that other teams don’t get.”
