A new coach has Bainbridge excited for the season

August 20, 2007

Bainbridge -- The Bainbridge Bearcats will have a new look this season, as head coach Ricky Woods comes in to take over the program.

Woods brings an impressive resume from South Panola in Mississippi, as his teams have won four straight state championships, going 15-0 each year.

That's sixty wins in a row, a Mississippi state record.

Woods takes over a Bainbridge team which went 5-6 last season, but the Bearcats have some big returning talent, especially at the offensive skill positions.

The coach was able to be with the team both for spring practice and summer conditioning, and says that time with the players has been a big help.

"Any time you change, it's different for the kids, it's different for you, just getting to know the players," says Woods.  "We run pretty good, and we're getting better blocking and tackling. You know football is football anywhere you go."

The Bearcats open the season against Early County.
