MORRO BAY, Calif. - It didn't take long for Morro Bay head coach Jack Greer to make his mark on the Pirates. The long time defensive coordinator, led the Pirates to eight wins in his first year at the helm last year after winning just a single game in 2011.
Greer knows his Pirate team will have a bullseye on their back after last season's success, but he's confident his young squad will be up for the challenge.
"I don't really worry about other teams," Greer said, "As long as we go out and perform and keep our mouths shut, the wins and losses will take care of themselves."
QB Jordan Bray was one of the Pirates top performers a year ago, but his graduation opens the door for Dan Beavers, who will likely replace Bray in 2013.
Beavers provides the Pirates with the ability to run and throw the football effectively, and should make the Morro Bay offense one of the most efficient groups on the Central Coast.
"I can already tell after just a few practices that we are going to play with heart and be physical out there," Beavers said, "I know a lot of teams might be bigger and strong than us, but we will definitely out match them with our heart."
Beavers and Morro Bay open their regular season schedule with a home contest against San Pedro on Friday, August 30th.
