In recent years Emmaus football has been known for its staunch defense while the offense has been more of a finesse unit.
Head coach Randy Cuthbert wants to make this a physical team on both sides of the ball.
"You have to be able to stop the run and you have to be able to run the ball," he said Monday night. "We are working on it right now and our guys are getting better. They are improving and it showed against Liberty. I think they are starting to buy into it."

Saturday night against Northampton, Miller surpassed that total in three attempts.
The junior running back rushed for 132 yards on 10 carries and was instrumental in an Emmaus 49-28 victory over Northampton (0-5,0-6) at Nazareth's Andrew S. Leh Stadium that was more of a blowout than the score indicates.
