Football Works Through First Spring Scrimmage (
We have a real power back in Andre Williams. That guy right there is a strong, big, powerful back. We are little dinged up on our offensive line right now but I like the way we are developing. So those two things can go together pretty good. The other thing that goes together is Chase can make plays. I liked the way he developed as a leader today. He really worked at that today. He's making better decisions and he's throwing the ball well. We can really tie in some play action with him.

“We really have got to be a more balanced team,” Rettig said. “We have to establish the run, and a lot of guys that are quarterbacks and receivers don’t want to hear that. “But if you can establish the run it opens so much in the play-action game. At the end of the day, with all the various offenses, the biggest thing for me this year is to get the 10 guys with me in the huddle and take them to the end zone.”

“We already had a previous relationship so I know him on a personal level,” said Rettig, who came to BC from Sierra Madre, Calif. “It’s great to have him as an offensive coordinator and we are installing a brand new offense this year. There’s a whole new terminology and a couple of new things as there is with every offense. So it is just about getting the new terminology down. I’ve learned a lot of difference stuff, but I’m not an offensive coordinator. I’m just going to keep playing quarterback and lead all the guys on offense.”

Said Rettig, “My biggest job is to really lead the other 10 guys in the huddle. That’s what I’m really trying to do my senior year and get us back to a postseason [game]. It’s really important to this coaching staff, the program, and the community.’’
