Senior leadership behind center set to lead Cleveland football
CLEVELAND, Tennessee (WDEF)- Football season is just around the corner, which for the Cleveland blue raiders is too close but also too far away.
It’s real Easy for a lot of folks to get really excited and want to hurry up and get to the game. Coaches and players we have to stay focused on each and every day leading up to that. We got a lot of work to do before we do get to that. Not a lot of time, but I would say we got a lot to go on a short time to get there.
We’ve had a really good off-season and a good start to fall camp so I think we’re on the right path.
Wheeler wants his players to know it doesn’t matter if you’re a senior or a freshman you come ready to play.
We are trying to find depth Play some guys. We talk about it all the time in the game of football I don’t care what grade you’re in. We were younger guys, we don’t want them just take on the role of while I’m just a young guy so it’s not my time, I know your time is now.
It’s really just being a team and playing together and come together as one and ultimately just finish games.
Lambert is now entering his third and final season as qb as he took the quarterback role partway through his sophomore year and Wheeler says Lambert has earned that leadership role.
He’s got a lot of games under his belt. He’s had a lot of success year for us as a quarterback and the biggest thing, what’s great about helping him not only the experience he has but the way our guys rally behind him and the confidence they have in him.
I just try to leave by example and vocally, I know they follow me and they look up to me and it means a lot so I just try and set the best example again.
