Head coach Mike London will enter his 3rd year with the Virginia Cavaliers in their 2012 football season. The Cavaliers had a surprisingly successful season last year, going 8-5 and finishing 2nd in the ACC Coastal Division. Coach London also saw his first winning season with the program. To see the same success this year, he’ll look to key offensive and defensive playmakers like running back Perry Jones and corner back Demetrious Nicholson to help motivate their sides of the field. With a tough schedule ahead of them in the 2012 NCAA season, the Cavaliers are going to need a defensive player who can make big stops and no one is more capable to do so than linebacker LaRoy Reynolds. Since Coach London switched the defensive philosophy to a 4-3 scheme, Reynolds has led his team in tackles. If these key playmakers can stay healthy this season and contribute to their team, the Cavaliers will undoubtedly continue to find success in the 2012 season.
