Young Bobcats optimistic

BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) -- Bell County has dominated its district in class 3-A, but head coach Wayne Mills' squad has just six seniors on the entire roster to work with this season, making it extra difficult to prepare.

But defense will be the focal point in 2013. The Bobcats had four shutouts last season.

Mills said he isn't worried about the inexperience of his team. He thinks as the season rolls along, so will his team.

"On defense, we think we got some speed this year," Mills said. "I feel like we're not real, real big, but we move well and I think that's going to help us. I think that we will swarm to the ball really well."

"We return some good secondary guys and some linebackers and as our d-line continues to get better. I think we'll have another good defense here at Bell County."

The Bobcats return just four starters from last year's team.

"We are young up front. I think as each game, those kids will gain experience and as we hit district play, you know, you feel like you'll be ready to hit your stride," Mills said. "Anytime you got young players, it's just making sure that they mature and make sure they develop each and every week."
