VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Rush Propst is using experience to regather his teams focus amidst recent troubles. He spoke about how his team projects in the pending season at the In the Game Sports Network media day at Valdosta Mall.
The Packers are looking ahead to the 2015 season trying to achieve the hardest feat in sports: Defending a championship.
However they hit a bump in the road this off-season with projected starting running back 17-year-old Tykerious "Grump" Jones facing serious charges. He has been suspended indefinitely.
In order to regroup, Propst is leaning on what he learned when he coached at Hoover High.
"In 2002 we lost a football player that died in front of our players, said Propst. "In 2002. I had a lot of those kids that came in and talked to our players about overcoming the toughest adversity that you can, the loss of a player"
