Cordele -- The Crisp County football team finished third in Region 1-AAA last season, advancing to the state playoffs, and the Cougars are seeing increased participation on this years team.
Crisp County with fifteen to twenty new players on the squad this season, and while their athletic ability has gone up, so has the inexperience.
The Cougars with two new quarterbacks this year, and have swapped a few players on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.
Tommy Walburn is beginning his second season at Crisp County, and says things are a lot different from year one.
"When you come in new, and you don't know all the kids names, or a lot about them, this business is all about building relationships with people," says Walburn. "I feel like in a years time you can build a better relationship with someone than you can in 3 or 4 months."
Senior wide receiver Marquan Jones adds, "We're looking for an undefeated season. We got a lot of players that came back from last year. New positions, moving people around a little bit, so very looking good. Real good."
The Cougars host Dooly County Friday night at 7:30 pm.
