Rams' new coach makes offensive changes

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Worth County starting a new era with head coach Scotty Ward.

Ward says it is a dream come true after he was selected to replace Harris Rainbow who is now coaching at Walnut Grove in north Georgia.

Ward is making some changes to the Worth County football program.

The Rams will switch from the wing T to a multiple pro style attack.

The new coach believes the change in offense will improve Worth County's ability to throw the football.

However the ground game is still going to be the bread and butter for the Worth County offense.

The Ram's offense will feature a heavy dose of running back Sudarien Smith and Tight end Justin Tukes.

Scotty Ward said.  "Last year we didn't throw the ball that much. Hopefully we will stick it in there a few times but we'll mainly line up and try to run the football. But hopefully we'll be able to throw here and there a little more so."

The Rams expect to have strong defensive line with starters in Sheerod Loud, Jonathan Brown and CJ Williams all returning.

Ward believes his team has the talent to succeed and that the key will be execution.

Ward said.  "We've got some kids who are going to be pretty special we've just got to find ways to make sure they touch the football and get them in the right spots. Hopefully doing that we're gonna be okay."

Worth County will open the Scotty Ward era against Turner County on August 28th in Sylvester.
