WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. — The Wakulla War Eagles are always a team to be feared in the Big Bend. Last year they reached the Regional Semifinals and the goal this year? To get right back to the postseason.
Head coach Scott Klees notes to get back to the postseason it takes a lot of dedication and with two dozen seniors, that's not something he's had to worry about with this group.
It's a talented senior class too. Leading the way offensively is Jaylon Worsham, who threw for nearly 1,700 yards and was the War Eagles leading rusher last year.
Coach Klees is excited about their line play this year. They're talented, but they've got to create some depth if they want to make a run.
"Usually we carry about 45 players on our team. We'll probably have around 30 this year. We're developing and working hard to developing depth, we've worked on it all spring," said Klees. "Those young guys are growing each and every day. The good thing is they have these seniors to look up to. It's just not coming from the coaches, it's just not coming from the assistant coaches, it's coming from the players as well."
