Chase Logan (6-1, 165, Jr.), another productive receiver, had 250 yards to his credit. Kolt Merrick (6-0, 175, So.) is tasked with getting his playmakers the football. Merrick started as a freshman throwing for 1,204 yards and eight touchdowns. Cooper Coffman (5-11, 175, Jr.) will handle the rock at running back. Last season he rushed for 340 yards and three scores. Landon Welch (5-10, 185, Sr.) is an aggressive offensive lineman with good speed off the line.
