TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - After a disappointing 2014 season, the Chiles Timberwolves look to rebound and make a name for themselves in 2015. Chiles was 1-9 last year, and it was tough all the way around, for first year head coach Garrett Jahn as well as the guys.

This season though, with another year under everyone's belts, Jahn said he is ready to combine everything they learned into some big wins. Chiles started six sophomores last season, and had a big junior class, one that included quarterback Landon Simpkins, who is back.

With that returning experience, Jahn said the Timberwolves are ready to really compete with other teams in Leon County.

"At the end of the year, I got to look back and say something good came out of that," Jahn said. "These kids didn't give up, they didn't quit, they fought until the end of every game, and it gave us a little bit of positive momentum going in to the offseason which has been tremendous. We had a great offseason, really looking forward to next year to get a little of that bad taste out of our mouth. I have a lot more confidence and a much better feeling heading in to this season, so we're looking forward to it."

Chiles doesn't have to wait much longer. They kick off the year with a fall jamboree at home next Friday against University Christian. They open up the regular season by hosting East Gadsden on the 28th.
