Sandersville, Ga--In high school football, the players constantly change, but there are some things you can always count on. One of those is for Washington County to be big and physical.

With Joel Ingram in charge, there's plenty of motivation to run over people, and the Golden Hawks are consistently one of the best teams around at doing just that. This year, though, it won't be quite the same as usual. Ingram says the offensive line has just two guys over 200 pounds, so the game plan might be just a little different.

"We're going to have to finesse people a little more, which coming from a place like this I feel like lightning's going to strike when I use the word finesse, but we're still going to be who we are. We're still going to line up and run the football at people. In terms of doing that play in and play out, though, we're going to have to be more creative as coaches."

"They're strong though. We've been working hard, and they have too. I think we're going to be a really good team this season."

Another change, AJ gray takes over at quarterback after an all-state season at safety. Washington County better be ready early. They play two defending state champions in the season's first three weeks.
