Central Washington: High Goals For Offense This Season

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, Wash. -- The defense always seems to be there for the Central Washington Wildcats. But this year, the Cats are hoping to get a little more spark from the offensive side of the ball.

The Cats finished 8-3 last year but in seven games they scored less than 30 points a game. That 30 point mark is what quaterback Ryan Robertson hopes to hit every time this season.

Blaine Bennett says he will rely on his junior quarterback for leadership this season.

"We have a veteran quarterback so we are going to put more on his plate," said Bennett. "He's going to make good decisions for us in those critical situations, on third and fourth down, but our offensive line also has to be the key."

"We're just trying to develop more of a sense of urgency on offense," said Robertson. "We don't want to be relying on the defense. We want to be scoring in the 30 point range each game and I think we're capable of that."

Central opens their season September second at home against Texas A&M-Kingsville.
