THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) - In less than a month, high school football teams in north Florida and south Georgia will play their first games of the season. South Georgia squads kicked off practice last week, and Brookwood is ready to take last year's experiences and grown from them.
Brookwood loses some key players off last years team, but head coach Shane Boggs notes they have a lot of talented guys returning, including all-region running back and receiver Nick Knifer.
Boggs says the competition this camp has been fun to watch, and along with the guys pushing each other, one thing this group will look to do this fall, after losing several close games last year, is finish.
"We played 13 games counting that Classic and we competed in 12 of them, but we have to do a better job of finishing," he said Monday. "I felt like 12 of those 13 games, we had an opportunity in the fourth quarter to win it, we just didn't get the job done. Getting the job done in the fourth quarter a lot of times is a product of what you get done out here. Hopefully we need to practice a little bit better and take advantage of those fourth quarter opportunities."
Brookwood is playing at the Cramton Bowl in Montogomery again for their Preseason Classic. They'll play Glenwood on August the 17th.
