CMU quarterback Dan LeFevour discusses 2010 season

If you mention the words Central Michigan, one name has become synonymous: Dan LeFevour. The senior quarterback from Downers Grove (IL) has played a big part in the resurrection of the CMU football program and he has rewritten the record books along the way. ChippewaCountry had a chance to sit down and ask LeFevour a few questions about the upcoming season, starting with his senior season goals.

"I don't really have any personal goals this season, I'm just worried about team success. You know if we do well, I assume I'm doing pretty well. Team goals go before any individual thing" said Lefevour.

LeFevour was then asked what position group may see some younger players step in and play.

"I think you might see a running back or two play, maybe an offensive lineman, but you never know. A lot of this stuff will sort itself out once camp begins".

Central Michigan has used recruiting the past few years to build some important depth. LeFevour was asked what positions have the deepest depth on the team and gave one not so surprising answer, and one that may raise a few eyebrows among Chippewa fans.

"I'd say probably wide receiver, we have some depth there," said LeFevour. "Then, you know what, I would probably say the secondary as well, we have a lot of guys coming back and guys getting healthy, so I think we'll have some good depth there as well".

Branching off on the response defensive end Frank Zombo gave about the importance of the Central Michigan versus Western Michigan game, LeFevour shared his thoughts on the rivaly.

"That's a good rivalry, I hope we can beat them again this year. A lot of times that game decides who takes the MAC Championship, not so much last year, but you can throw the records out the window in the Central/Western rivalry".

Western Michigan is thought to be the number one challenger to the Chippewas after the media dubbed CMU the team to beat in the MAC West for 2010. Is Western the top competition for Central?

"I wouldn't say that, I'd say there are a number of teams. Northern Illinois is going to be tough, Toledo will be tough, Ball State has been playing real good the past few seasons. But I think Western will have a good record and be a good challenge for us".
