NEW RECEIVERS CALLED ON TO STEP UP
Almost the entire Har-Ber receiving corps consists of new faces after the departure of Michael Fine and Evan Johnson. Fine and Johnson combined for 97 receptions and 1,355 yards last season, which was 57 percent of the Wildcats' receiving yards in 2011.
POSITION BATTLE: RECEIVERS
WATCH OUT FOR: Nick Byrne. He's a big receiving threat who can go up and get the ball against any coverages. He has also received two scholarship offers and interest from several other collegiate programs.
BIGGEST STRENGTH: Speed. Har-Ber has a collection of receivers who have the ability to get the ball into the endzone on any given play.
BIGGEST QUESTION: Who will step up? With so little experience, aside from Byrne, with this group of pass catchers, Har-Ber will need someone to step up to be go-to guys like Michael Fine and Evan Johnson, who combined to average 14 yards per reception, and help out the inexperienced quarterbacks, as well.
