There's some real motivation at Williamsport.
"I'm very excited," senior quarterback Isaiah Hankins said. "We had a little taste of winning. So we want to get back to that. But we want more. We're more hungry. We have a chip on our shoulder. We know there's a lot of hype going around."
Hankins is at the center of that hype. Now a senior, this is his third year starting under center and from Treyson Potts to Elliott Walker, he's got weapons and options.
"I know I'll always have Treyson to dump it off to, Elliott, Dante, my tight end, Jaylon Jackson," Hankins said. "It's very easy with a lot of weapons."
"Luckily for us, we have a very selfless team," head coach Chuck Crews said. "We have a quarterback now who does not have a primary target. There's enough footballs for everybody."
The millionaires have a million dollar roster. They return 19 of 22 starters. They have size up front and really talented skill positions. All signs point to this being the year they compete with the big boys."
"On paper, we're a pretty good team," Crews said. "But we got ten Friday nights to prove exactly who we are. So until we get to the point where the scoreboard's lit up and those lights are on, it's all a mood point."
"I think our team's mentality is just we're ready to eat and we're ready to win," Hankins added.
A mentality bred from what happened last year. A 4-0 start, just a 1-5 finish.
"Last year, if we lost, we got down on ourselves and this year, we've just gotta pick ourselves back up and keep going and have the leaders carry the team and everything," Potts said.
"We got hit by that wall and our heads got down," Hankins said. "So as leaders, we just gotta pick up our team and have a mentality that we're all gonna take falls, but gotta get back up."
And hopefully win, on and off the field.
"We have a good team. Yeah. But we got good people and that's more important," Crews said. "So, that's what I'll hang my hats on and the wins and losses will take care of themselves."
