MADISON, Fl. (WTXL) - The 2017 high school football season couldn't have ended any better for Madison County. They won the Class 1A State Championship, and did it by completing an undefeated season.

A ton of talent gone from that State Championship team, and Madison looks to replace their starting quarterback, their top two rushers, and their leading receiver.

Who is back? Florida State commit Travis Jay, who head coach Mike Coe said for now will start at quarterback, but there are a lot of young guys waiting in the wings.

Of those young guys? Coe pleased with the way they've been working.

"Got a lot of young kids that want to do well. Effort and want to is not a problem, but experience and learning how to strain and it's okay to hurt a little bit," he said. "You still can run hard, it's a physical game, you have to get better everyday, but proud of the spring we've had. We've been really physical. We banged a lot this spring."

Madison gets a good test for the spring game. They host Wakulla on Thursday, May 17th. Kickoff is at 7:00.
