NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) - New Albany should have a much deeper team in its second season under head coach Cody Stubblefield.

The Bulldogs have more than 80 players on their roster, including 30 freshmen.

"We just want to keep growing and keep getting better," Stubblefield said. "We feel like our group has gotten better as a whole, the depth has greatly increased between last year and this year, so that's some stuff we're really excited about."

Despite the bigger numbers overall, New Albany has just eleven seniors. The Bulldogs went to the playoffs last year and finished 7-4.

"Obviously, we want to make it deep in the playoffs, the championship if we can," said quarterback Charlie Lott. "No one around here is OK anymore with a first round exit, no one wants to do that."

"We're just trying to run to the ball every play, play hard, be more physical, and run to the ball more, really," said outside linebacker Adrian Garcia.

New Albany opens at East Union on Friday.
