The back-to-back Southland Conference champions are in Lake Charles, Louisiana. That's because before the season starts they have to answer a few questions about the team picked to win it all again in 2011.
Despite having to replace Jeremy Moses, the Lumberjacks are predicted to win the conference again. That's a challenge left tackle George Bias plans to stand up against. "We are excited about this year," said Bias. "A lot of teams are calling us out since we don't have (Jeremy) Moses anymore, so we are ready to prove a point. We are ready to prove that we can still win another championship and start the three-peat, something that has never been done before."
Head Coach J. C. Harper says that the team has to move on from Moses. The changes from year-to-year are something he actually looks forward to facing. "I love challenges and I love seeing what you can develop," said Harper. "In college football guys graduate and they move on. So it's a great challenge to see if you can keep building that up, and letting that next guy come in and seeing what he can do. So yes I'm excited about it."
SFA will seek their 7th overall conference title this season. The Lumberjacks' first game is against McMurry on September 1st. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. on campus at Homer Bryce Stadium.
