Division I matchup | For the first time in program history, the Builders are playing an NCAA Division I opponent. Granted, Campbell doesn't offer football scholarships, but still, an ambitious game.
Rushing attack | To have any hope of progress, Apprentice must run the ball better. Last season the Builders averaged 28.7 yards per game, 1.0 yards per carry.
Farewell to Cain | Replacing senior receiver Bryan Cain's production — 55 catches, 773 yards, eight of the team's 19 touchdowns — will be difficult.
Soph. | 6-1 | 258 | OT
Darn few freshmen make first-team all-league, and rare indeed is the rookie offensive linemen who earns such an honor. Carta did last season, making All-Atlantic Central Football Conference.
Jr. | 6-2 | 200 | LB
Jones led the Builders with 71 tackles in 2010, 11.5 for loss. Plus, he had five sacks, three forced fumbles, two recovered fumbles and two interceptions. Serious nuisance to offenses.
Jr. | 5-11 | 150 | DB
Like Jones, Lane made second-team all-conference last year. He led Apprentice with 44 solo tackles, six pass break-ups and four interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.
Michael Vite, fourth year at Apprentice and overall (5-24)
A former defensive coordinator at Guilford, Morgan State, Murray State and Southern Illinois, Vite had the Builders playing credible D last season. Now he attacks the offense.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
