AUGUSTA, Ga.---There's been a feeling at Glenn Hills for the past few years that the team is on the cusp of becoming an elite program. It remains to be seen if 2007 will be the year of the Spartan.

The Spartans had some tough losses in 2006. 3 of their 5 defeats were by 10 points or less. This season, the Spartans believe they can better last year's 5 and 5 mark despite the fact that head coach Ernest Tolbert says this is more or less a rebuilding year. They do return a starting quarterback and running back and, if the offseason is any indication, the tide may be turning in south Augusta.

Coach Tolbert explains, "The enthusiam of the kids working this Summer gave us some life as far as looking for a great season. Our offseason program, working this Summer, that made a big difference in having high hopes for the season."

Senior quarterback Mike Evans says, "It's the same old thing. I've been doing this for a while. I'm confident enough to get things done this year. It's motly on my teammates as far as they take us."

Coach Tolbert will look to the defense as the strength of this year's team as the try to get back to the postseason for the first time since 2004. They open next Friday at Greene County.
