The Gloucester County Generals are leaving no stone unturned, as they prepare for the up coming 2006 DFL season. They went out and got former Woodrow Wilson Offensive Coordinator, Marlon Bounds "We are excited about what Marlon will bring to the table". Says Generals Head Coach Al Hunt, "His wide open attack, combined with great balance will mix extremely well with our speed and talent" reports the head coach. Last year the Generals had a potent offense to start the season that seemed to sputter at the end of the year, scoring 90 points in the first 3 games, adding only 95 in the final 7 games of the season. "Last year we hit a rut, and came unglued at crucial times, with Marlon and what he will bring, we will be able to remain focused on our goals, all of his players have enjoyed success, with quarterback's setting records, 1,000 yard rushers and plenty of happy wide outs, and it will be fun". Hunt continued, "We have up graded at every position, adding plenty of speed, experience and character I am extremely pleased with what we have seen so far".
The Generals finished last season with an 8-2 mark, winning the DFL's NJ division in only their first year. They are undefeated at home and carry a 2 ½ game un-scored upon home streak into 2006. Some key returnees for the Generals are: OT Tom Boland (Williamstown), C Marc Fanelle (Deptford), WR Billy Gordon (Mantua), WR Tyree Foster (Mantua), WR/QB Tim Parker (Glassboro), HB John LipShultz (Mantua), DT Anthony Sheeran (Washington Twp.), CB Butchie Dover (Franklinville), MLB Mark Marshall (Washington Twp.), SS Jamal Watkins (Sewell), DE Hayes Johnson (Deptford). This will supply a great foundation for the team, but even more exciting news is what they have added with the rookies examples are: OG Jason Morrell (West Deptford), DB Dan Wehner (Washington Twp), RB Dan Holmes (Washington Twp), OT Chuck Kirby (Woodbury), RB Omar Miles (Clayton), OL Eric Johansen (Turnersville), WR Sean Slippi-Mensah (Paulsboro), plus many more. This will make cut down to the DFL League minimum 40 players very difficult, which is just fine with Hunt.
