South Sioux City, NE - The Briar Cliff Chargers have 49 freshman on their roster this year. Head Coach Tom Rethman wants some new blood on his team. But he's not giving up on the players he has coming back. The Chargers bring back their starting quarterback, running backs, wide receivers, linebackers and three players in the secondary. It's the same group that won just one game a year ago, but lost five games by less than two touchdowns. If that group has improved at all they'll have a chance to put together their first winning season in school history. Quarterback Kevin Van Engdom says "We'll be better. I'd like to see us win five games this year and get to 500. That will allow us to build on something for the future".
The Chargers kick off the season on August 31st at Benedictine.
