The Concord Mountain Lions hit the practice field for the first time on Monday afternoon.
It’s a new season, but there are plenty of familiar face returning to the sideline this year. That includes nearly a dozen upperclassmen — leaders — that know what the staff expects on a daily basis.
The main focus for those guys and Paul Price in the offseason has been to establish a new, but familiar brand of Mountain Lion football.
“The culture up here — despite not having the best couple seasons — this is a winning culture,” said second-year quarterback Kyle Akin.
“The saying that we use around here is ‘The mountain isn’t for everybody’, meaning the way we do things doesn’t suit everybody, but everybody that’s here in this camp, it suits them.”
Concord will open up the season with Notre Dame College on September 7.
