Wayne State football coach McLaughlin hopes an experienced offense can help the Wildcats regain their winning ways. Eight starters return on offense from last years team that finished 5-6 during an injury plagued campaign in 2014.
Junior Zach Osborn is preparing for this third year as the starting quarterback after passing for nearly 33 hundred yards and 25 touchdowns a year ago.
“Zach Osborn is one of the top level quarterbacks in the league and last year he got better in his sophomore year as the season wore on and was playing well at the end”, said McLaughlin. He had a good spring and so far this fall has looked really sharp. We’re looking for big things out of him.”
After starting 4-2 a year ago, the Wildcats dropped four of their last five games and injuries were a major factor. Nineteen players missed either one game or suffered a season ending injury.
The Wildcats open the season at home against Minnesota-Crookston on September fifth.
