East Hamilton's Achilles heel over the past couple years has been their depth at quarterback. Two of the last three seasons, the Hurricanes have suffered injuries, and just last year they went through three different quarterbacks.
Senior Jared Price will start this season for East Hamilton, and head coach Ted Gatewood is hoping for a healthier season.
"You go home and pray a lot and you go home and think about it and you say 'look it is what it is and we just got to keep working and getting kids experience" says coach Gatewood. "Injuries are going to happen. They're just part of the game. You don't want them to, but they do happen."
Price threw for over 125 yards in East Hamilton's playoff game last year. Along with him, the Hurricanes return three starters on offense, and three on defense.
East Hamilton will open up the season next Friday at Signal Mountain.
