Angelo State University head football coach Dale Carr is more optimistic about his fourth season at ASU than any of the previous three - and that includes the 2005 season when the Rams reached the NCAA Divsion II playoffs.
Carr has reason to be optimistic. The Rams return twice as many seniors as they did last year and boast more talent and experience than they have in the past few years.
Since making the playoffs in Carr's first season, the Rams have won just five games in two seasons. This year, Carr believes the Rams have a chance to put those seasons behind and have one more like his first one, when ASU won nine games.
"I think all the pieces are finally starting to come together," Carr said.
