Outlook: The Knights took 14 players to a summer training camp at Idaho State and "had a blast," Swigart said, and they feel they’re a better team because of it.

Though Round Mountain was 0-9 last season, it lost four games in the final two minutes.

And Swigart feels the camp in Pocatello, Idaho, went a long way toward preparing his team.

"At the end of each day, it put us way ahead," Swigart said. "And to have a little confidence going in, that’s all they needed."
