Just 33 days are remaining until the kickoff of the 2021 high school football season. But make no mistake, preparations for the upcoming campaign got underway months ago. And teams throughout northeast Georgia already are in full countdown mode.
With that in mind, we spent the last couple of weeks catching up with programs around our area to get a feel for how spring practice went, how the summer is going, and what coaches believe the fall will look like. Our "Two-a-Days" series honors those old-school grinding sessions that lead us out of summer and into fall, asking each area coach two key questions about the state of their respective programs.
Over the next two weeks, AccessWDUN's Friday Game Night will get you prepped for the start of gridiron action with responses from coaches throughout northeast Georgia. (Teams run in alphabetical order)...
The Leopards, like many teams, battled several bouts of COVID-19 issues in 2020, culminating in having to forfeit their first-round playoff game due to a depleted roster. But the numbers are up in Homer, which should help them restock and replace several key skilled players.
We caught up with third-year coach Jay Reid to discuss the increased enthusiasm in the program heading into the season.
