Allendale, SC--They're a team that's use to winning and winning a lot of football games. As Allendale Fairfax coach Wayne Farmer put it, losing in the first round of the playoffs a year ago counts as under achieving. Don't expect that to be the case this year.
The leader on the field will be Jerrell Priester. The senior running back has already verbally committed to Vanderbilt and was a 1,200 yard rusher a year ago and picked off a couple of passes on defense. Speaking of which, that could be the key to the tigers success.
"I think defensively, even though we only have three seniors on defense, we had a lot of freshmen play last year." said coach Wayne Farmer "We feel real excited because we're going to be pretty good this year, we got a good chance. I'm very excited about what could happen this year."
Bashaud Breeland moves into the quarterback slot and expect him to turn and hand to Priester a fair amount of times. Allendale did win five straight to get into the playoffs and are a school known for track athletes as well as football and it usually equates to winning a lot on the gridiron
