Hatten expects an easier year two

Rising junior Corey Armstrong started the 2013 season's last half at quarterback and is the man to beat heading into the 2014 season. Rising junior Alex Maxwell started for the junior varsity last year, and rising sophomore Rusty Moorer started for the freshman team.

"The big thing is we've got three guys that played in our system last year," Hatten said. "The first-year quarterback is really hard to predict. The second year is a little bit easier.

"They have a grasp on what you are trying to do and how you are trying to do it. Their reads are a little more easy. They are little more comfortable."

All three quarterbacks have made considerable progress during the off season, and Hatten said he looks forward to seeing how they will continue to develop.

Even with Reed's departure, the Bulldogs will be deep at running back and, Hatten said, "I feel great about our running backs."

He also likes the returning receivers, and said to expect some defensive starters to get touches on offense this year.

"We like what we are going to do," Hatten said. "We think it's going to be a challenge (for defenses) with the people we have at the perimeter (wide receiver), the slot receiver position, running back and quarterback.
