Chattanooga-(WDEF) Last season was agonizing to say the least for Mocs defensive end Zack Rayl.
He tore up his knee in UTC's final pre-season scrimmage last summer, and he missed all of 2013.
So with the Mocs season opener approaching on Thursday, no one is more excited about the new year than Rayl.
"Oh. I've got chill bumps right now just thinking about it to be honest with you. It was really hard (last year) because I had just been named a starter, so it was really hard. I felt like I let the team down when it came to that. I'm back now, so I'm good to go."
