THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) - It's a new era at Thomas County Central. The veer offense has been replaced with the spread,as Ashley Henderson took over the reigns of the Jacket program back in February.
So the offense is changing, but some traditions never die. Midnight Madness went down at Central Tuesday night to kick off the first day to be able to practice in pads. A lot of people are ready to see what this new look can do.
Both of Central's leading rushers are back. Henderson is excited about that, and keeping that tradition going is important to him as well.
"If a night like this, Midnight Madness, with the tradition and the crowd and all the competitive juices that are flowing, if that don't fire you up, you got Kool-Aid for blood," he laughed. "You know, sloppy field, wet ball. There were no excuses and kids were getting after each other. A lot of competition out here and it was a lot of fun."
First up for the Jackets? Early County at home on August the 17th.
