Red Raider Defense looking for big things

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

After seeing a revolving door with the Defensive Coordinator position, Matt Wallerstedt is back for a second season to lead the Red Raider defense.

He says they have high hopes for the season.

"I think the guys are ready. They've worked extremely hard. They're as excited as anybody. There's no more higher expectations than what is in that building across the street right now."

Wallerstedt says fall camp will answer a lot of questions as spots are won…but Senior Linebacker V.J. Fehoko put his focus on team chemistry:

"One thing Coach Wally has been harping on is leadership among the defense, leadership among the team. That will take us far. That will take us to where we need to get. With leaders, more leaders in the locker room, we have a better chance of winning ball games."

Two practices of 23 are in the books for the Red Raiders. The defense looks to deliver starting Aug. 30 as the Red Raiders host Central Arkansas.
