The Burges Mustangs were 2-8 in 2010, but under the second year of Head Coach Marcus Graham, the Mustangs are hoping for much more in District 1-4A. Burges returns 16 starters, 8 on offense and 8 on defense, and hope that could be the difference. Graham wants more, especially in the preseason.
"The effort and the execution has been pretty sharp so far. Not as many mistakes, mental mistakes and that's one of the things we have to eliminate in terms of taking care of the football. The young guys are pretty much learning what to do right now and they are doing a pretty good job of that."
Burges opens up the season Friday, August 26 at Mountain View.
