"I don't care what kind of conditioning program you have or how much you run, eventually attrition is going to take over and when you got teams like Cabell Midland that can bring waves of kids at you, it just wears you down, and we're trying to get to that point where we can send waves of people," Taylor said.
Instead of taking the hits, Hurricane now rides the waves thanks to its burgeoning depth.
"I noticed in the second quarter (Friday), you noticed Logan was, their big boys had their hands on their (hips), bending over," Taylor said, "and we've got five fresh linemen coming out on offense and they're coming out on defense. We're sending four fresh linemen in on defense."
In addition to great numbers on the line, the Redskins rotate many different skills players. Against Logan, nine different players finished with at least one carry and seven different receivers caught a pass.
"In past years, some of those kids might not have played," Taylor said. "Now, we're trying to get - the more kids you play, the more kids you'll have come out. Instead of playing 15 kids both ways and you've got 50 on the sideline, you're playing 25-30 kids in a game, and you've got your freshmen and sophomores watching, getting ready for next year."
Hurricane will face its biggest test in the season finale, at undefeated No. 1 Cabell Midland (9-0) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
On paper, it appears a daunting task, but Hensley said the Redskins won't concede anything.
"All we can do is go out and play 100 percent like we're supposed to," he said. "Everybody has to show up to play. We have to work as a unit."
With those words, it seems the players have absorbed Taylor's philosophy.
"We're trying to change the attitude at Hurricane," Taylor said.
No matter the style of play or the individual talents of specific players, depth holds the key.
"We took some lumps there with some kids, but we hung with them and I think it's going to pay big dividends in the future," Taylor said. "We only got seven seniors. The future is bright, it really is here. You just have to work."
