The Buena Vista football team went just 2-8 last season. That included a three game losing streak to start the year, followed by a win and another five game skid. BVU head coach Jay Anderson is back for his seventh season, with plenty of experience.
BV has eight starters back on defense, but that defense gave up 30 or more points, five times in 2011.
BV has five starters back on offense, including quarterback Bobby Brown, who missed half of last season with a broken ankle. Running back John Hill returns after running for over 800 yards.
The Beavers think their seniors can turn things around.
"We feel like we've got the veterans in the right places right now at the skill positions to make a push, but we'll find out," said Anderson.
"Predicted to get sixth in the conference, that motivates everyone because we know we're better than that," said Brown. "It's just good motivation for us."
"We want to grow off last year," said junior linebacker Brady Randall. "I mean, two wins, but there's a lot of room for improvement there. So, the only place to go is up."
BV opens the season at home on Saturday against Wisconsin-Plattville at 1 o'clock in Storm Lake.
