Well it's almost time to strike up the band and cut on the bright lights we're about a month away from the start of high school football and got a little appetizer Saturday in Valdosta. "In the Game Magazine" and the South Georgia Medical Center presented High School Media Day at the Rainwater Conference Center. 11 coaches representing 11 schools from the southern part of the area sat down to talk about what folks can expect from their teams this year.
Valdosta, Lowndes, Colquitt County, Thomasville, TC Central, Brooks, Berrien, Lanier, Clinch County and even GISA Valwood all took time to talk about how much things will change for their schools in the coming months.
Jim Dickerson said "There's not anything else to do in Homerville, we don't even have a Wal-Mart. We got football, that's all we got. Our kids know that and they want to grow up being Panthers. Certainly we believe in the whole saying that kids are going to live up to the expectations. We have some tradition and we kind of play to that strength."
Ken Cofer "We don't have that many division 1 prospects. I told a lot of coaches that we have kids that are about the same size. If you watch the Wizards of Oz and you go to munchkin land, that's what we look like."
There will be another high school football media day next week in Tifton
