Fitzgerald High Football

Fitzgerald High School    - Purple Hurricane
Fitzgerald, GA

Region:   1-AA

Head Coach:  Robby Pruitt

Coaching Staff:  Mike West/DC, Buddy Nobles/OC, Randy Garrett/DL/AHC/AD, Mike Booth/OLB, Trip Stripling/DB, Lee Dorsett/OL, David Vaughn/QB, Sultan Cooper/REC

Principal:  Randy Garrett

2008 Record:  11-3

Type of Offense:  Wing T

Type of Defense:  50 - 3/5

2009 Outlook:    Should be competitive on the offensive side of the ball with 7 returning starters.  The big question mark will be the Quarterback position.  Will be stating a sophomore (Kaleb Nobles) and he will need to grow up quickly.  Our biggest concern is on the defensive side.  We had our biggest loss to graduation on that side of the ball.  Our lack of size on defense is a concern but this year we do have 1 player over 200lbs.  This year our region will be tough, but I think we have a chance.
