OXFORD, Ind. (WLFI) — It has been a tough three years for Benton Central football. BC's 3-27 record over the last three seasons ushered in new leadership with defensive coordinator-turned-head coach Tyler Marsh.
Marsh is ready to restructure the Benton Central offense around the passing talent of junior quarterback Colin Wilkinson.
"He's improved a ton," said Marsh "He hit the weight room a lot, and he's really grown as a quarterback this year."
Wilkinson will begin his second season under center. He threw for just shy of 800 yards with 4 touchdowns last year. When asked about his personal growth, the junior said his goal this season is to only throw to the green and gold jerseys.
"I want to have no interceptions," said Wilkinson.
Marsh wants this year to be different for the Bison football program. He said this year has the potential to be unique with a larger number of players on the roster.
"Last year we had a lot of people playing two-ways," said Marsh. "One thing I've really worked on this year is getting as many people one-way. With an increase in numbers we've had some older kids come out that hadn't come back in the past. That's given us the chance to [have more one-way players]."
Benton Central will open its season Friday night at home against the Delphi Oracles at 7pm.
