PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It has been a struggle on the football field for Division II Cheyney for quite some time.
The Wolves have spent the past several season at the bottom of the standings in the extremely strong Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. However, there is hope that 2013 could be the year that things start to click.
One big reason for optimism is numbers. One of the big problem for the Wolves has been depth, making the usual attrition of a football season especially devastating. But here in 2013, participation is proving not to be a problem at Cheyney.
“We’re extremely excited about our numbers,” Cheyney head coach Ken Lockard tells KYW Newsradio. “(Tuesday) I think we had 107, 108 out there at practice for the first practice of the two-a-day. We’re sitting with a lot of guys out there. There’s a lot of competition and the beauty of the numbers is adding the extra competition unlike in previous years.”
