Myrtle Creek, OR -- The majority of South Umpqua's football team is underclassmen. It's up to the senior class to bring them along.

"During practice I'm telling them that we're not trying to be hard on them," senior tight end Christian Allen said. "We're just trying to give them a good look. This is what it's going to be like. It's going to be a lot harder in a real game than what we're going to be doing out here."

The Lancers think having a younger team can play to their advantage.

"Other teams don't have the film and won't be able to see them," senior lineman Zach Downard said. "Everybody plays a little bit differently than everyone else. It's all going to be a little bit different. With all these younger guys coming up and stepping up it should help us quite a bit."

Although the Lancers went 2-7 and were winless in league play last season there were many close games. The team is hoping to turn those close games into wins.

"We just need to be executing what our coaches game plan is for us and going out and doing what he's just telling us to do," Allen said. "I think we'll be just fine."

South Umpqua opens the season against Yreka September 6 at home.
