Murden ready to lead Newberry in senior year

Newberry, S.C. (WACH)- Coming off just its second NCAA Div. II postseason apperance in school history, the Newberry Wolves are set to make another run in 2014.
The Wolves had its best year under head coach Todd Knight last season going 9-3. Knight is entering his sixth season and is excited about getting things cranked up again.
"It's an exciting time," Knight said. "We're riding that wave of emotion from last season and we're looking for big things this year."
First-team preseason All-SAC quarterback W.T. Murden will lead the Wolves on offense this fall and is expecting to have a solid senior season.
"I've become comfortable in this system because it's pretty much been the same for the past three years," Murden said.
The Airport High alum has earned full confidence from his coach, passing for nearly 5,000 yards and 41 touchdowns in his career.
"He's come through a lot," Knight said. "There was a time when he struggled on and off the field. But he's pulled it all together and has become a leader for us. He's a winner."
And if Murden can continue his success under center, expect the Wolves to be competing for a SAC Championship this fall.
