Culture change helps Josey build program

Aug. 3, 2014 AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW) -- Culture change and attitudes are a big part of the Josey High School football team's vocabulary. After a win-less season in 2013, the Eagles are moving in the right direction as a program.

The Eagles have the numbers in returning guys, only five seniors left last year. Plain and simple, they need to put up more numbers on the scoreboard.

Last season, the Eagles were shutout six times. Coach Raleigh Roundtree said the struggles are all part of the process. This could be the year his players buy in.

"I think it's the attitude, the culture. I'm changing the culture around here. You don't start building a team in one year. I gave myself a couple of years to get it started. I think this year will be the year," Coach Roundtree said.

"It's different. We're working harder and we're actually listening and paying attention to the coaches and trying to get better," running back Naquan Anthony said.

The offensive and defensive lines are a good place to start building a program. Coach Roundtree believes that will be the strength of his Eagles this season.
