2011 Team Preview: Garden City
One of the hardest workers on the team, both on and off the field is redshirt sophomore DE Chaz Nelson, a preseason All-American, who posted 91 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 2011 and his presence should ease the loss of Maurice Couch who signed with Tennessee after last season.
While Nelson will be joined by several freshmen or inexperienced players up front, the Broncbusters do have some talent in the back seven including linebackers Mitch Bean (23 tackles in 2010) and Keith Curran, a full-qualifier, who will be one to watch this fall.
The secondary has a couple of lock-down corners in Dequavius Cobb and Terry Perkins, a second-team All-Conference selection who notched 30 tackles and one interception in 2010, and they will be counted on to shut down the opposing receivers while some young safeties get their feet wet.
Offensively, the Broncbusters appear to be in good shape up front with the return of Clem Fellhoelter and the emergence of Darryl Williams who redshirted in 2010, but has the talent to warrant some early D-1 interest.
The loss of WR Jeff Anderson to an injury could be troublesome, but WR Kenny Cook and QB Wes Winfrey should form a nice combination.
At running back, there are a host of players who will try to make up for the graduation of Keion Wade who rushed for 838 yards and five touchdowns last fall.
Garden City kicks off the season on August 27th against Northeastern Oklahoma A&M and then begins conferenc play against Coffeyville on September 10th.
