PLAYERS TO WATCH 

Ian Drago, Sr., QB

Drago will have some big shoes to fill as he attempts to replace last season’s starter, Cobyn Herbert, but Peeler believes Drago is more than up to the task. Drago served as the backup in the spring and will guide an offense that will be substantially younger than it was last season. “He’s definitely going to be somebody we need to step up and take the reins for us,” Peeler said.
