|The offense was impressive at times, too, behind the feet and arm of quarterback Corey Jenkins (South Carolina). According to a knowledgeable fan in Kansas, Larson's team is in re-load mode.
We have a friend in Garden City, Kansas, who provides regular reports about the BroncBusters to JCFootball.com. Here is his report:
|Things are coming along nicely with the Garden City C.C. BroncBusters. It remains to be seen if we can equal or better last year's record (11-1), but what is certain is that our players will be better. We have strengthened the areas that needed it, such as QB, TB and OL.
Here is a look at the returning starters (noted with *). What is important is the number of sophomores and redshirt freshmen and redshirt sophomores on this depth chart. All of the freshmen play in their first year and we have a good redshirt program.
Coming out of spring ball these players are #1 at their position. Also, we'll take a look at players that were placed and then finish with a list of players that could be placed.

There are a number of other players that could be headed to GCCC before fall camp begins. We have a list of names but will not post them yet as they are unconfirmed.
Once again it will be a dog fight between GCCC and Butler Co. for first place as these two teams are loaded again. Coffeyville could be third with Highland having a chance at fourth.
A team to watch in the future is Dodge City. Their new head coach is John Rossetti, who is GCCC's former defensive coordinator / secondary coach. In two or three seasons they will be a contender.
