(KING CITY, Mo.) As Micah Breckenridge enters his second season as head coach of the King City Wildkats, and it will not be a mystery what his team's strategy is.

"We're going to be mainly a run team," Breckenridge said.

The Wildkats lose just four seniors off last year's team, so a seasoned offensive line returns.

"Having that big offensive line we can set the stage, hopefully we can move the ball. That'll ease the pressure off our quarterback."

Senior Caleb Eiberger takes the reins at quarterback. He played wide receiver for Breckenridge last season, but his team has faith as he switches positions.

"Caleb's going to be a great quarterback," senior Tyler Fore said. "He's an awesome runner."

Eiberger will be running behind a line that is led by Fore, a senior that is also making a position change.

"They put me at the guard position this year, so I can pull, be out there running with the backs," Fore said. "Be his main blocker out front with the fullback. It's going to be a good feeling knowing that if he scores a touchdown, a lot of us had something to do with it, us lineman."

Maximum effort is what Breckenridge is looking for from his team, because he is not keeping his approach a secret from the rest of the Grand River Conference.

"The schools in our conference...everybody knows what every other team has, and they'll know what we're going to do," Breckenridge said.

King City opens the season against Lathrop.
