Former Lowndes assistant Rob Armstrong is back in south Georgia and ready to return Berrien High into playoff contention region 1-AA.
Armstrong has been a successful head coach in north Florida in the past few seasons.
He takes over a Berrien High team that has not only won just seven games in the last three years.
He is also the Rebels eighth head coach since 2000.
Armstrong is thinking long term by putting a lot of younger players on the field in his first season.
Seniors Devonte Bass and Quincy Payne will lead the offensive and defensive backfield.
Juniors Taylor Griner and A.J. Wooten will anchor both lines of scrimmage.
Rob Armstrong said. "It is about how familiar the kids are with the system. They line up in the same spot all the time on defense. The terminology on offense is the same. What is expected out of them and what the coaches expect out of the kids everyday. Just kind of get familiar with that."
Berrien opens at Calhoun County on August 31.
