Northeast Raiders want to improve on last year’s 3-7 record

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Northeast Raiders finished with a record of 3-7 in 2014, a mark 12th year head coach Bruce Mullen knows needs to get better. This was also the first time in five seasons that the Raiders failed to reach the playoffs.

If the Raiders want to return to the post-season, they’ll need to improve an offense that managed just 17.4 points a game last season. For 2015, Coach Mullen will be handing the quarterback duties to freshman Nolan Ussery. They’ll also employ a new running back, Phillip Thomas, who played safety a year ago.

The defense will also need to be better, as they gave up nearly 30 points a game. They’ll have four starters returning from that squad.

The first game for Northeast will be against Southwest, at Henderson Stadium on August 28th.
