The Morro Bay football team is hard at work trying to put a 1-9 season behind them. The Pirates have a new coach this season for the first time in 15 years. John Andree stepped down and his long time assistant Jack Greer is now in charge.
The Pirates lost their entire offensive line to graduation last year and this season only 32 players are on varsity. Greer says he has made accountability a big issue with his players. DTR is the team's motto, meaning do things right.
"Regardless of the score we're going to go out, we're going to work hard. We're going to compete and just play with that dedication and determination" said Greer.
Morro Bay doesn't have much team speed but three year starter Jake Beavers thinks they can move the balls by other means.
"The main thing we've been focusing on is competing every play and just running down hill and being the more physical team and getting hard earned yards" said Beavers who will play linebacker and fullback.
Senior Jordan Bray will be the teams full time quarterback after spending time at running back, wide receiver and quarterback last season.
"We came together as a team this summer, had a great camp and we're going to have some success, I guarantee it" said Bray.
Morro Bay opens the season on Friday night in Los Angeles against Torres High School. Torres was 4-4 last year.
