Led by the returning cornerback tandem of Najee Goode and Manny Patterson, are primed to shut down the passing games of Colonial Athletic Association opponents.
"I think we're just solid there. Najee Goode on one side, Manny Patterson on the other, five safeties that have played. Darrius Hart and DeAndre Scott have proven themselves as starters, but we have really good backups too. It's just a solid group which hopefully can have a breakout year this year," Maine football head coach Joe Harasymiak said.
The Black Bears have their second scrimmage on Monday. Harasymiak hopes to have a starting Quarterback by then.
