Glenwood focused on weekly improvement in 2014

PHENIX CITY, Ala. -

The Glenwood Gators have a simple goal for the 2014 season.

Improving.

“We just want to see improvement throughout the year,” said head coach Tripp Henderson. “I want to see them take the next as far as the foundation we laid last year. We want to see them build on that, and obviously the goal is the playoffs."

Glenwood graduated just two seniors from last year, but one was Dylan Denny, who accounted for more than 1,000 rushing, receiving and returning yards—each—last season. The overall numbers for the team are down, but some of the guys like that.

“We’re just going to have to come together as a team,” said senior running back/safety Anthony Davis. “It's not a lot of us out there, but I like having a smaller team also, because I feel like it's more of a brotherhood, and we're truly playing for one another."

After a disappointing 2013, Glenwood didn’t waste any time preparing for this year.

“We gave them the week off when the season ended last year,” Henderson said. “The week after that we were in the weight room, and they knew they had a long way to go. They had a great offseason. I feel like they're really starting to see the improvements in themselves, and it's carried over into football season. They've worked really hard. I'm hoping they get what they've earned."

Glenwood opens the season on the road against Sherwood Christian on Aug. 29.
