ADEL, GA (WALB) - Tthe Cook Hornets have gone through their share of tragedy in the last two years.The offseason was difficult for Cook High after the sudden death of head coach Mac Thompson after just one season.


Assistant coach Ken Cofer is now the Hornets head coach.

Cook High has 21 seniors returning from a team that went to the state quarterfinals last year.

The Hornets are led by Alabama commit Shannon Brown at linebacker and running back.

Trey Register will also see plenty of time on the field at quarterback and in the secondary.

The Hornets have made the playoffs each of the last ten years but coach Cofer says this year's expectations are even higher.


Ken Cofer said. "We're looking for big things, we're talking about championships also. We're tired of finishing fourth, we're looking for region and state championships. This team, this is the hardest working group we've had here at Cook since I've been here since 2005 and I'm very proud of that."

Cook High faces a tough opener Friday at Colquitt County.

Game time is 7:30 p.m. at Mack Tharpe Stadium in Moultrie.


This year the Hornets are looking to triumph on the field.
