VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - When you play in a region home to the past two state champions, the standards for excellence are very high.
Irwin County is shooting very high in hiring their new head coach.
The Indians hired Camden County assistant Jon Lindsey as their new head coach.
Lindsey says he is bringing what he learned at Camden to build Irwin County into a state championship contender.
The new wing-t offense will be led by lineman K.J. Billingsley and halfbacks Ryan Peterson and Jamadre Wilson.
Senior linebacker Mason White and free safety Donte Studstill are standing out in the 3-5 defense.
Camden County has been one of the winningest programs in Georgia in the last decade, coach Lindsey says the turnaround didn't happen overnight.
Jon Lindsey said. "It didn't happen overnight in Camden County. Hopefully it happens real quick here. We are getting there as fast as we can. Implementing those same systems and ideas."
Irwin County will open August 26th at home against First Presbyterian.
