20-Yard Dash: Moorefield Yellow Jackets

Like many other high school football teams, Moorefield is trying to figure out the mystery that is how to replace seniors that graduated.

The Yellow Jackets have 18 pairs of big shoes to fill after the class of 2014 took them to the quarterfinals last season.

The biggest hole seems to be on the offensive line, where only one of last year's starters are returning this season.

With experience gone, moorefield head Coach Josh See is starting over this year, with the hopes of winning the conference and hosting another playoff game in November.

While younger players are stepping up, Coach See also searched for athletes from another sport to fill the gap.

"I went to the basketball ranks and I got seven or eight guys to come from the basketball team," said See. "They're athletes so they're going to be a little green. We're going to go through some growing pains. We're going to be a pretty good ball club when we get all that stuff out of the way down the line.

"We lost a lot of size on the line, but we replaced that with a lot of speed too," said senior defensive end Byron Dolly. "We got quicker linemen. Not near as strong but more agile."
