Woodberry Forest certainly does not lack depth on their team in 2014.

The Tigers have an 80 man roster, and head coach Clint Alexander expects to get most of the team involved.

"We build everything around being unselfish and so guys embracing their role. Not coveting the next man's role. So we play a lot of people. Our goal is to play 56 guys by half every game."

Coach Alexander has some special players on the roster including an-all state corner in Nathaniel Tyrell who plays on Special teams.

"Great one on one coverage. Excellent in the open field as a punt returner. He averaged 34-yards a return."

Tyrell is not afraid to field a punt, and he expects to take it the distance every time he touches the ball.

"I trust the guys blocking for me. I know that they'll come up when I need em to block. You have to have that mentality. Every time you get the ball you're going to score. If you don't, you won't score."

The Tigers plan to run a balanced offense in 2014, as well as two QB system with sophomore Lindell Stone and Senior Christian Zaytoun.

Head Coach Clint Alexander is excited about both players lining up under center.

"You've got two really great guys that make great decisions. Great arms. They run the ball well. But probably their best attributes, they make great decisions."

Despite having two different signal callers, the team is confident in the Quarterbacks running the dual system.

"Christian and Lindell are very good about keeping things simple for us. They're great at what they do," says junior offensive tackle Clark Yarbrough.

Senior running back H.T. Minor believes in both quarterbacks as well.

"One big value that we stress on this team is unselfishness and both Christian and Lindell. They're great awesome guys. They just roll and there's no drop off."
