Evans, Ga--There are so many benefits to seven on seven passing leagues that they're spreading like wildfire through out the south and country for that matter. Seven on seven camps thought can mean a whole lot more for teams with new head coaches. In this area, Thomson comes immediately to mind.

Now under the direction of former ECI field boss Milan Turner, the Bulldogs are getting added time on the field then just spring football. Turner has more of an opportunity to learn about his kids and start to put an offensive system in place.

"It's good for our kids, it's good for our football IQ" said new Thomson coach Milan Turner "You know, learning the offense, the defense, going against opponents, reading defenses, lining up in formations, and it's good for us as a staff and the players as well. We're getting to know each other, we're learning how to communicate. It's not like a Friday night, but it's similar."

"It's important just to get the timing down with all the guys and learning the system and just learning the concepts of the offense so it's pretty important." added Josh Jones

Now Turner isn't trying to replace Luther Welsh, he's trying to continue the legacy already in place. He says fans can expect more of the same physical style of football the Bulldogs play.
