Football practice at Stephen F. Austin has taken on quite a different character this season. New head coach Robert McFarland has injected a high level of intensity into everything they do, all in an effort to take the program to national prominance. And despite 11 division 1A transfers, McFarland has had to lay-in to his team a few times this week and says there's still a lot of work to do.
"This football team is not where I want to be," said McFarland. "At this point, if we're going to compete for a championship, we got a ways to go. I addressed that with them when they first got here. They're working hard, we just got to get them all on the same page."
