For their own good
Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.
Who's back: OL Dontae Davis, RB Willie Hopps, OL Brandon Jennings, OL/DL Vittorio Ottanelli, DE Montrey Pride
What's new: A winning attitude. As Washington begins his third season, the Yellow Jackets finally believe they're ready to take a significant step forward. Despite the fact Blake is stuck in a tough district (see above), it might just have the talent to do it. For the Yellow Jackets, everything starts up front, where a powerful and experienced offensive line will try to set the tone for what could be a dangerous rushing attack. Davis and Jennings are three-year starters; Ottanelli is a potential Division I-A recruit. Hopps, a powerful runner who gained nearly 1, 000 yards last season, has worked on his speed during the offseason and is primed for a breakout fall. For the offense to click, however, Blake must find a reliable signal caller. The leading candidates for that role are senior-to-be Devin Morgan and rising sophomore DeAndre Rodriguez. On defense, Pride might be the player to watch. At 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, he has the size and quickness to be a force. All he really lacks at this point, Washington said, is experience.
Audibles: "We can compete with anybody. But instead of moral victories (this season), we have to get wins." - Washington
Did you know?: Coaches say Ottanelli, a straight-A student, is one of Blake's most aggressive players, and they think it has something to do with his athletic background. He was once a rugby player.
