Wildcats ready for Twisters with new coach

June 15, 2005

Albany - New South Georgia Wildcats coach Donnie Davis does not have a lot of time to settle in to his new job.

Davis has to get his team ready for his first game as a head coach Saturday night in Arkansas.

Davis, who is just the second head coach in the history of the Wildcats franchise, has some holes to fill on the offensive side of the football.

Quarterback Bobby Pesavento, offensive specialist Matt Burstein and starting linemen Tanaka Scott and Brian Devine have left the team due to the firing of head coach Chris Siegfried.

Donnie Davis understands that some players would not be staying with the coaching change but he is more concerned with the players who are sticking with him.

Donnie Davis said "No matter where you go you have guys that follow their coaches or are on a team for a particular coach. But that is good because we do have guys that have been waiting to play, wanting to play and eager to play. We will definitely give them the opportunity to let them go out there fly around and win some ball games."

Fullback Jason Null said "Everybody we lost is a big loss. We just have to make up for it.

With Bobby Pesavento gone, the Wildcats are giving former Middle Tennessee State quarterback Andrico Hines a two-day tryout. The team leaves tomorrow night for Arkansas.
