Mic'd Up: Bennett, Warriors pushing toward opener

By AccessWDUN Staff | Video by Seth Chapman

CLEVELAND, Ga. — Chad Bennett may be the new head coach at White County but is not new to the program.

Bennett spent four seasons in Cleveland before he left to lead the Gainesville offense last season. When Tim Cokely decided to step down last year, Bennett was high on the list to become head coach of the Warriors.

Since being officially hired, Bennett has hit the ground running, implementing his system and philosophy. 

We stopped by practice last week to catch up with the Warriors and Bennett.

Bennett is our fourth new area coach to grab the mic in our Mic'd Up series. 

To watch, press play above.
