The Statesmen made a tremendous improvement in Cole's first year as coach. Now they want a playoff win and regular season wins over what one player considers "The Big Four" - Goochland, Buckingham, Central Lunenburg, and Nottoway. Joe Reed, a playmaker that will head to UVa in a couple years, can flat out change the dynamics of a game. He has a senior QB returning and the defensive line is a strength. Expect them to throw more than they run and with 14 starters back Randolph-Henry has a shot to make some noise and steadily gain some momentum.
