CORDELE, GA (WALB) -  The Crisp County Cougars will be under its 3rd coach in 3 years.

 

Former Dodge County head coach Lee Campbell has taken over for Sean Pender who went back to Pierce County High.

Campbell, who led Hawkinsville to back to back state titles, inherits a Cougar program that has talent.

Receiver Jontavious Carter has committed to Miami and is one of six offensive starters returning.

Coach Campbell says the secondary is the strength of the Cougar defense led by Marshall Taylor who has committed to the Air Force Academy.

 Lee Campbell said. "We feel like we're going to have a lot of speed on defense. It comes down to fundamentals, you have to tackle. You have to get to the ball and tackle. Offensively we still have some work to do."

Receiver Jontavious Carter said. "We have all our chemistry, its still there. We're going to be pretty good this year."

Linebacker Dontavious Colson said. "Staying humble you know, we don't want to end it like we did last year."

Crisp County opens the season at Turner County on August 26th.
