Springers looking for improved leadership for 2012

Posted: Updated:
HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Going 7-3 is usually a great record for a high school football team.  But it is not good enough for Highland Springs.. as the Springers had to watch last year's playoffs from the stands.

This year, Loren Johnson is hoping some improved leadership and team chemistry will help the Springers get over the hump.  He says that this year's team has the best camaraderie of any team that he's had since he took over at HSHS.

It helps that they also have a lot of talent, including returning quarterback D.J. Johnson.

Highland Springs opens with one of the highlighted games of Week 1 - at Meadowbrook.
