(ABC 6 NEWS) -- It's been a tough couple years for the Southland Rebels, who've been down both in number of players and number of wins.
This senior class has made an impression on head coach Shawn Kennedy, though.
"These kids have worked so hard in the offseason," Kennedy said. "I'm just really proud of them."
Kennedy says his team isn't the deepest, but he'll put his starters up against anyone.
Southland opens the season against Caledonia Friday, Aug. 22.
