Last season Mark Sanford came to William Monroe with the hopes of turning around the program, but the Dragons went 0-10 for the second straight year. Sanford says it was the most disappointing season of his professional career.
"For me personally it was the worst feeling in the world," says Sanford. "To go through an 0 and 10 season is embarrassing, it's frustrating, it's discouraging, it's all those things wrapped into one."
This season, Sanford and the Dragons are optimistic that they can improve. Now that they have had a season to learn from each other, they feel like everything is starting to come together. The players understand the playbook more easily and they have come to embrace Sanford's disciplined coaching style.
The Dragons also have a very experienced team in 2010, with nearly every starter back from last year's team. Their biggest strength is the offensive line, as all five members are returning starters.
Given their experience, the Dragons feel they can compete with anyone. Coach Sanford expects his team to be in the hunt for the Jefferson District title in 2010.
