Squad lost to graduation. The red and black Callaway Cavaliers will head to nearby Heard County Friday night to tangle with the Heard County Braves as the 2000 gridiron season gets under way. Head Coach Sonny Cummings will have his hands full this sea- son after losing nearly all of his 1999 starting lineup due to grad- uation. To say the least, the 2000 season looks young and inexperi- enced at this point with only six starters from the 7-2-1 team of a year ago that went to the state playoffs. But don't underestimate Sonny Cummings' coaching ability and experience. He's been around coaching for a long time - 32 years to be exact. He coached for eight years at Hogansville High before Callaway High was built and has been the CAVS "head honcho" for all of the school's existence - five years. Cummings has coached at Troup High before coming to HogansviUe. He still has a trick or two up his sleeve or maybe he can even pull a rabbit out of his hat. The Cavaliers are also moving up in classification to AA. Tkey will be in Region 5-AA with familiar company - Manchester, Greenville, Northgate, and Lamer County. Newcomers will be Decatur, Grady, Carver (Atlanta) and Crim, all from the Atlanta area. Macon County and Heard County are the only two non-region games. Jay Brewer-running back, Adam Pike-offensive line, Mark Hajdasz offensive linemen and Ahrnad Mitchell-offensive taelde are the returning starters on offense and Bryan Hester-strong safety and Jaque Tigner corner back are returning on defense. The CAVS have 46 players on the roster but maly 10 are seniors. See CAVALIERS, Page 12 gansville Citizens Urged Help Clean The Hootch residents are being asked to the Chattahoocfiee.
