That's how Old Collegians coach Nick Sheehan describes his team and the year ahead.
"We'll look to be quicker and keep control of the footy," he said.
"It's a different team than two years ago."
He said the Warriors, which made a preliminary final in 2019, had a younger age demographic in 2021.
"It might give us a more exciting brand of footy, we'll have our ups and downs no doubt with a younger group," Sheehan said.
"But that's something pretty exciting that we look forward to."
The Davidson Oval-based club has a host of recruits.
Michael Pritchard (West Brunswick), Marcus Bunney (Koroit), Aston Hall, Joe Kenna, Nick Alexandrou, Jacob Lacy, Matthew Petherick (Russells Creek), Logan Lilley (Hawks), Thomas Mahony (Port Fairy), Luke Moutray (Dennington), Matthew Porra (WAAFL) and Kobi Bidmade (North Warrnambool Eagles) are among the acquisitions.
Sheehan said Alexandrou would be good in the ruck.
"He was at East Warrnambool and he went to Creek and he's come across to us," he said.
"He's good mates with Pepsi (Matthew Petherick), he works with him out at Rebel.
"He'll be good in the middle, in the centre hit-outs there and around the ground.
"He's a big body which is what we need."
The coach was pleased to get Kenna, Petherick and Lacy back to the club after some years away.
He added Moutray would be a welcome addition to the back line.
Pritchard, who was in the Victorian Amateur Football Association the past three years, has impressed the Warriors' mentor.
"He's done a good solid pre-season and is looking good so far," Sheehan said.
"He might play half-back or half forward, he's pretty skillful and uses the footy pretty well."
The Warriors leader added Porra might play half-forward or half-back.
"Matty Porra is another one who was a junior kid who moved away and has come back to the area so he'll be good," Sheehan said.
"(And) Marcus Bunney has come in from Koroit so he'll give us a target up forward and get an opportunity to kick goals."
Sheehan named a number of young players to watch this season.
"I've got a couple of kids coming through after missing out in the under 18s (in 2020)," he said.
"Blokes like Harry White, he's had a really solid summer as well.
"We're looking for a good year out of him.
"He would have played a bit of senior footy last year."
Fans can expect him to line up at half-forward and wing.
Sheehan also mentioned youngsters Elijah Dawson and Jonah Bowles.
"They'll both play down back, they'll come up out the under 18s and they're good promising talent there to work with," he said.
The Warriors mentor said Isaac Frusher and Jarryd Cust were other young players pushing for senior selection.
"It'll be a bit of a different team this year with us with a lot of younger ones coming in," he said.
The Warriors outs include Ryan Dorling (WRFL), Josh Reichman (Hawkesdale/Macarthur) Blake Rudland-Castles (Russells Creek) and Bodie Hibberson.
