Summary: Coach McDaniel said of the players on his roster, "These are my guys. I know them. They know me." He been around the block after three seasons and his Titans are primed for their best season yet. In the past two seasons the Titans did make the postseason but they lost to Bedford and BG in their first games. McDaniel thinks they're mature enough now to play well right from the start. St. John’s blueprint is a sound defense and an overall fundamentally sound team. Returning playmakers (Lichtenburg, Mitsopolous) creates confidence and now expectations are higher with more experience.
