Improvement, Improvement, and chemistry... These are the three words that West Virginia Wesleyan head coach George Shehl says will define his season. Improvement was key for the Bobcats last year. Coming off a three-win team, they were picked dead last in the MEC. But Coach Shehl's team shocked everyone. Finishing with a winning record in-conference, good enough for sixth place. A big part of the reason was quarterback, Jeremy Musselman. Back for his senior year, the quarterback had nearly twenty-five hundred yards and twenty last year. Numbers that Musselman thinks can be improved on. The defensive side of the ball is no different for the Bobcats. Defensive standout Mike Savage was proud of his team's performance last year, but is nowhere near satisfied. But the football team isn't the only thing getting improvements around West Virginia Wesleyan. A brand new turf field was recently lain down at Ross Stadium, and the team is enjoying practicing on it for the first time. That packed house will see a team that won it's last three games by an average of two touchdowns. A team that running back Michael Anderson says will be looking to build on that trend. That bond will face it's first test this Saturday against Charleston. For a team looking to build on recent success while starting something new.
