Things learned, observed around Kadena football camp

-- Since when is a 4-2 season a losing season?
¬¬-- When the Kadena Panthers say the 2011 season was.
¬¬-- Not nearly up to their three Far East Division I championships in four years standards.
-- Man, that line has gotten HUGE! People returning who are 20 to 50 pounds more muscular.
-- Backfield’s back intact, one year older, one year wiser.
-- You’re going to like this offense. Like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get from play to play.
¬¬-- What will we miss from that offense? Longtime coordinator Steve Schrock will no longer be pacing the sideline, looking as if the next play will be the last football play ever run by anybody.
-- Good to have head coach Sergio Mendoza back; it was rumoured he would be stepping down, but changed his mind just as summer vacation began.
