Summary: During a preseason camp retreat Coach Wood made it clear, telling his players, “We can't succeed apart, we need to succeed together.” It’s a message players should take to heart because they face a tough schedule with nine new starters on defense. St. Francis on the schedule for the final time, at least for the foreseeable future. Coach Wood said, "[St. Francis] kicked us off the schedule without discussing it with us."
