Wrens, Ga--Jefferson County against Laney is just one of a great opening week games. Last year the Warriors not only made the playoffs again, but finally got over the hump and won a post season game for the first time ever.
In that new region, Jefferson County will have their hands full in getting back to the promised land. Only four starters are back on defense, five on offense. That's the bad news. The good news, Chris Crenshaw, who's committed to Georgia Tech, and Barry Bostic, who had a tremendous season as a sophomore are back. They are two cornerstones in what the Warrior program is trying to build.
'Last year we felt like we got over a little bit of a hump" said coach JB Arnold "We don't want to sell out for one year. We want to be the kind of program that succeeds every year. We lost a lot of quality players last year and we're going to be extremly young this year. We just hope these kids can respond and the seniors can lead us like I know they can lead us and hopefully good things will happen for us."
The program did lose the likes of AJ Harmon and Lamar Brown so others will have step up and get it rolling early.
