Another junior who caught Fagan’s eye was Quinton Gregory, who leads the pack at right backer.
“Quinton has shown a great deal of improvement throughout this spring, and his good size and quickness will help us become a great defense,” Fagan predicted.
As far as the one of two senior linebackers, Cason Teel, will be looked to for leadership.
“Cason’s hard work and great nose for the football will lead to an exciting senior season,” Fagan predicted. “Will is a very intelligent player, and his ability to understand the game will help him become an important part of our defense this year.
"Tristan Doffin missed spring with a shoulder injury, but has looked strong thus far in two-a-days and could be a big part of our defense,” Fagan said.
“Sophomore Kane Moore is a very good player and seems to find his way to the football every play. Shiloh Windsor has a great frame and lots of natural athletic ability,” Fagan added.
Others are Todd Penick, whose quickness and toughness were pointed out by Fagan. He also noted that junior Quaid Johnson loves contact.
Sophomores like Gunner Holder could see some action this year.
Fagan is a Texan who went to high school at First Baptist in Dallas, graduating in 2002.
He played his college ball at East Central University, receiving his bachelor's degree in 2006 and master's in 2008.
He will be a history instructor at Ada High.
