Greenbrier High School football
EVANS, Ga. (WRDW) -- It was far and away the most interesting coaching move in the CSRA and maybe even the state of Georgia, for that matter.
Jarrett Troxler left Lakeside for Greenbrier, a team that didn't win a game last year. Now, Troxler is trying to turn things around.
First and foremost, the Wolpfack have more kids out for the team. Always a challenge when you struggle to win games. Troxlers attitude has brought about guys wanting to get on the field and win. The other big change, tempo. Look for a fast-paced style to keep everyone on their toes.
"Sometimes their heads are spinning because we practice so fast, but I'm all about tempo and no standing around and get in and get it done," said Jarrett Troxler. "Sometimes when you have boring, slow practices, you lose the kids. I think, especially in today's times, you have to be efficient with time."
"The commitment of players last year was not what we needed but this new coaching staff has really gotten done what needs to be done and getting commitments of player," said Allen Wells.
When you come from a zero win season, there's only one direction to go and for Troxler he just wants to see improvement and wants to see his team be able to compete on a weekly basis. Allen Walls, Jamal Richards and Adam Sasser should give them a start on offense to be able to put some points on the board.
