For Moody football, it's not so much trying to keep up momentum going into this season, but trying to get the Bearcats back up to speed.
Newly-minted Head Coach Jason Hill took over Moody after serving as defensive coordinator for four seasons.
Moody returns double-digit starters from last season, but this club is two years removed from the playoffs.
Hill said the Bearcats are talented enough to make it back to the promised land, and he believes the ingredients for success are simple.
"One of three things that I believe that the kids need to love... and its the coach, the sport, or another player around them. And, right now everyone out here loves the coach, a player or the sport, and it's about feeding off of that, feeding off the love and passion for the game or people around them and getting better every day," Bearcats Head Coach Jason Hill said.
"It's just about how we keep each other together on the field. Cause there are a lot of people in new positions and same people in same positions so it's about merging those people in and getting it all going as a well working machine," Zach Parrish, a senior linebacker, running back combination for Moody, said.
Hill and his Bearcats will rely on senior leadership to help ease the transition.
Their first game is Aug. 31st at home against Holland.
