Summary: The Lancers are loaded on defense this year with 8 or 9 starters back. Amherst was hit hard by graduation on the offensive side, especially in the backfield with seniors Marquis Brown and Sidney Sandidge moving on to he next level. Amherst will also have to replace 4 of 5 starters on the offensive line, so Coach Phillips says as the group continues to grow and mature, they'll have more success. The Lancers had to replace a lot on the offensive line last year as well and still managed to post a 9-and-3 record and advance to the region championship game. Amherst figures to be a tough out for anybody they play.
