Box 426 Hogansville, Georgia 30230 Gridiron Season Looks Exciting With football season just around the corner for our local high schools the excitement is building and rightfully so. The schools in the local area will join new regions this season and that hurts to some degree. Coaches have to prepare their teams for the opponents with game film from last season because they are not as familiar with those teams as the ones they've face season after season. It takes a great amount of time and patience to be a high school football coach. It is a very diffi- cult and often a frustrating job. However, our area teams are blessed to have some of the best high school coaches around lead- ing them into battle this season. CAIJAWAY HIGH has some of the best athletes in the area and will compete with both Manchester and Greenville in the region this season. They could prove to be a contender. The Cavaliers have a good offensive unit and good size up front. HARRIS COUNTY HIGH is. Iookingforwtrd tthe transition to Class AAA ball. However, the competition will not get any eas- ier for them than that of Class AA. They will still have to con- tend with the likes of Mary Persons and add LaGrange High and some other former Class AAAA schools to the mix and you have a very tough region. While the Tigers will be in a tough region, Coach Jim Morrell has his Tigers motivated for the upcoming season. One thing I learned about Morrell last sea- son was that he is a good motiva- tor, but an even better leader. CENTRAL HIGH in Talbotton lost head coach Ronald Graham a few weeks ago. The transition will be made easier with Coach Robert Jones at the helm. Central is posed to have a good season. GREENVILLE is also caught up in the new allocation of regions and will see some really good competition in Manchester, Crim, Grady and Callaway. Greenville returns a fair number of starters this season and should be com- petitive. ,MANCHESTER has seen a change at the helm as well. Coach Greg Oglesby resigned two weeks ago and Zeke Geer is act- ing as interim head coach. Geer will most likely be named head Blue Devils within the next few days. The Blue Devils haveateam this season that compares with the 1997 Class A State Championship team and should prove to be in the running for another state playoff berth. Geer will most likely open up the Blue Devil offense this season. While at Greenville, the wide open offense was his trade mark. FLINT RIVER ACADEMY has a pretty good backfield and line this season and is expected once again to make a run for the region crown. The Wildcats proved to be a strong competitor last season. The Wildcats also have anew ch and he is ect- to help impove the aldy strong program at Flint River. Rhett Farmer was an assistant coach for the Wildcats last sea- son, but was given the helm this season. YES, excitement abounds as the season prepares to get underway. After all, we all know how this area loves football. it's funny how often we for- get that coaching is more than X's and O's and blocking tech- niques or schemes. Coaching is more about instilling pride, moti- vation and character into young people. As a former player and coach, there is nothing I would take in exchange of those experiences. They taught me the meaning of being a team player, how to endure difficult times and situa- tions and most importantly the costs of winning and losing. For those reasons, it is impor- tant that we support our coach- es and players. With football sea- son only a few weeks away, let's remember that while the game is meant to be competitive, it is more about the things I have men- tioned. It is also important for fans to remember that we should set an example as well. When the game is over and the winner and loser is declared, let's be sup- portive of beth teams and depart as friends.
