And they came an eyelash from winning it all when Brenden Motley was under center. Motley is now a redshirt sophomore at Virginia Tech.
Coach Cromer's gang is coming off a first round playoff exit at William Byrd after a 7-3 season. 22 seniors exited the program after last year.
The 2014 version of the Blue Demons returns starting quarterback Charlie Jackson and they have a host of experience that this consistent program is now churning out. Coach Cromer explains that they may not return a ton of starters but they have the seasoned players they need.
These seniors have been in the program for four years and know the system. Cromer says he runs a "system program" so that is vitally important to his team's success. The Blue Demons open with Pulaski County before traveling to Group 2A state champion Giles in week two.
