Glover is a four-year starter and is expected to make a big impact in the trenches this season.

“Glover has been starting since freshman year, understands our system, rarely makes missed assignments, and that’s huge,” offensive line coach Jason Whitaker said.

Watch Pierce, Glover and the rest of the Bearcats start the season against Lee County on Friday, Aug. 26, at Centennial Field. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
