Alderson-Broaddus Battlers new head football coach Denny Creehan was all smiles at WVIAC Media Day on Saturday.
Mostly because of the excitement generated by starting a brand new football program. Along with the beautiful Performance Stadium that's currently being built.
The Battlers will welcome in a large amount of freshman along with some transfers for the upcoming season.
Creehan said this season playing as a club sport should leave this team well-prepared for 2013 when the Battlers take a giant step into the WVIAC for the first time in several decades.
"When I first went to Wesleyan we recruited 80 freshman that year and we went out there and we got it handed to us pretty good most of the time," laughed Alderson-Broaddus head coach Denny Creehan. "But the second year when you bring those guys back it's like been there done that. Nothing intimidates them anymore. So I'm hoping this is the year we do that for the kids."
