Avoiding the injuries that took a toll of the 2009 football season could be a key for Millbrook this season.
The Wildcats finished 6-6, but were battered by a pair of key injuries.
First, starting quarterback Trey McFarland went out with a concussion. He missed three games.
Then, sophomore runner Keith Marshall missed the last three games with a broken thumb.
Another big key for the Wildcats will be improving on defense, especially against the run.
"In the playoffs, we couldn't stop Fuquay-Varina's running game," said Millbrook coach Clarence Inscore, recalling a 27-13 loss to the Bengals. "We've got to improve up front."
Inscore said he was pleased with the summer workouts and has about 150 prospects, including 60 freshmen.
