<b>Washington-Lee football struggling with depth</b>

The Washington-Lee football team lost its season opener to McLean, 44-14, on Friday.

Shapiro also said the Generals struggled with tackling as McLean running back Riley Beiro rushed for nearly 300 yards.

"He’s real good," Shapiro said. "He ran all over us."

There were some bright spots for Washington-Lee. Linebacker Rock Battle finished with 12 tackles, running back Anthony Taylor rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown and quarterback Richard Lewis threw for 104 yards and a score.
