Mann ready to move into starting QB role By Rich Luna For the Denton Record-Chronicle
It was just a matter of time before Brandon Mann was ready to lead Sangerâ€™s offense, and that time is now. After sharing quarterback duties last season, Mann is set as the starter who is driven to turn the Indiansâ€™ fortunes around after a disappointing 2012. â€œI used to get so mad at myself, but now, I want to stay positive,â€? said Mann, a 6foot-1, 205-pound junior. â€œIâ€™ve learned how important my teammates are, how hard weâ€™ve all worked, and we all have such a positive attitude, me included.â€? That approach has Sanger head coach Chuck Galbreath confident his quarterback has developed the skills necessary to lead Sanger as the Indians attempt to rebound from an 0-10 season. Mann, likewise, wants to rebound from a sophomore season in which he shared quarterback duties with Wyatt Broxson,
who will play cornerback and wide receiver. Mann threw for just 90 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed for 71 yards. â€œI got some good experience last year and I know I wanted to build from that,â€? Mann said. Mann hit the weight room, led Sangerâ€™s 7-on-7 team this summer and also spent hours watching film. â€œI was able to see things I hadnâ€™t seen before,â€? Mann said. â€œYou see so much when you break down the film.â€? Galbreath was impressed with Mannâ€™s commitment to learning the game. â€œHe has grown so much as a player,â€? Galbreath said. â€œHeâ€™s a real high-character kid with a great work ethic.â€? The Indians figure to be more aggressive, working out of a spread offense. â€œI love having the spread,â€? Mann said. â€œWeâ€™ll be able to get the ball out with a lot of options.â€?
