This pre-season the Bulls were abundant with talent, and the position battles were a lot more competitive then it's ever been in years past. In every position on offense and defense; there are guys battling it out. "They're not just out there working," said McKeefery. "They're out there trying to impress and earn a spot."

In 2008 the Bulls graded out better statically in every category; Team strength, team speed, team power, and that all comes from the work that Coach McKeefery instills on the team. "This summer I challenged the guys," said McKeefery. "And many of the guys stepped up."
