Summary: Clyde makes the move from Division III to Division IV and they have a tough schedule, facing four teams that made the playoffs last season. Coach Carter says they’ll be a running team with their starting QB and RB returning. That being said he acknowledged that this year’s team has some speed at the wide receivers position. Gunner Golden rushed for around 1,500 yards last year and he has the potential to eclipse that mark this season.
