DHS receiver corps has all the intangibles

DEMOPOLIS &8212; When head coach Tom Causey made the declaration that the 2008 Tigers would throw the ball more than previous years, the pressure was put squarely on the team&8217;s quarterbacks and, subsequently, on its receivers.

Upon examining the young men who will man the flanks in the fall, Boone&8217;s confidence in the group doesn&8217;t seem at all unwarranted.

Cobb and Taylor highlight an athletic, veteran group that will look to make Boone&8217;s life easier on Friday nights.

While Cobb flies a little more under the radar in his efforts, Taylor demands attention through his physical prowess and personality.

Also among those expected to make an impact this season is senior Alan Brooker, whose 2007 campaign was hindered by injury.

While Cobb and Taylor likely headline the group, Williams expects sizable contributions from an array of players.
