TURNER CO., GA (WALB) -

The Turner County Rebels football team held picture day Thursday afternoon just in time to beat the rain.

Here's what the 2017 Rebels will look like in their bright orange threads, but under new management--how will they play.

First year head coach Leroy Hood will determine that.

Three months out from being hired--he's had a short summer to implement his spread offense.

The key to the offense is senior quarterback Tyler Moore.

Entering his third year starting-- Moore has impressed Hood with his play and leadership.

Hood says his Rebels aren't just fast learners, but they're flat out fast.

"We are unusually fast from top to bottom," said Hood. "We may not be as big, but we definitely get to the ball and fly around on offense as well. I've got playmakers that can get in space and make things happen sometimes when it's not anything there. But overall we're very young, but we've got to grow up pretty fast."

Moore led Turner County to 16 wins over the past two years, but just one came in the postseason. He's learning the new playbook and refining his game in hopes of improvement for his senior campaign.

"We've got more shorter passes this year, so I've got to read more," said Moore. "Just work on my techniques and mechanics and prepare for the defense."

First defense Moore will prepare for is Dougherty High.

The Rebels host them august 18th in Ashburn.
