EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. -

The East Stroudsburg football team returns 16 starters from a 7-win team in 2013. That has head coach Denny Douds excited heading into this season.

Of those 16 returning starts, 10 of them are back on the defense. 6 return to the offense. It's been a friendly point of competition between the two units in the preseason. Which one is going to have more of the "pull" during the regular season.

East Stroudsburg was picked 2nd in the PSAC East at the conference's media day in August.

ESU opens the year at LIU Post on Saturday.
