Lakeshore finished 2012 with an 11-1 record, an undefeated regular season, and a district championship. Unfortunately for them most of that team was made up of seniors who have sense graduated. When asked how many starers and seniors he had back this year coach Denny Dock simply replied "Not enough."
But, that is not to say he thinks he is in trouble. After complimenting how great last years senior class was he added "I call our team 'very unkown.' But I really like us."
After 32 seasons as a head coach, 25 of which have been at Lakeshore, coach Dock knows each year comes down to one thing, hard work.
"We have just got guys that play hard, smart, and like to play the game. That is how we kind of put it together."
His players aren't letting their lack of experience get to them either. Senior Dustin Clapp is the only returning starter on the defensive side of the ball and he knows that teams will be gunning for them.
"We play with pride knowing that everybody is out there to beat us. So we practice every day as hard as we can."
The Lancers begin the 2013 season at home against Marshall on August 29th.
