“McArthur offered me an exciting opportunity and I’m glad to be here,” he said. “This school is rich in football talent and I want to build a successful program here.”

Senatus knows it will take effort to win. “We need to focus on the details and we can have no mental errors. We have a young team and few seniors.”IMG 7893

He wants the players to do well in the classroom and considers academic success to be as important as success on the field. He encourages players to participate in community service projects.
