In Hudson's 17-14 loss to Gulf last week, Cobras receiver Jamie Tello had 10 catches for 91 yards and a touchdown.

But according to his coach, Tello didn't play his best.

"Actually, he didn't have a very good night for him," coach Mark Nash said. "And it was still a solid performance."

Translation: Nash thinks Tello - a transfer from Land O'Lakes who caught 20 passes for 243 yards in 2008 - can be very, very good this season.

"He has the potential to be one of the best I've ever coached," Nash said. "He's got all the tools. He's got above-average speed, and he's the best route runner I've coached."

With Zack Wynn at quarterback, Hudson will throw it a lot. That means Tello will have plenty of chances. For starters, at least.

"More and more teams will probably double cover him or scheme to him," Nash said.
