THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) - The Brookwood Warriors have a good nucleus of talent coming back for the 2017 season, as the team looks to make a little bit of noise in GISA ball this season.
Head coach Shane Boggs said he was extremely excited to get practice underway. The Warriors lose nine seniors, but return quarterback Joe Parker, and a good portion of their defense.
They'll look to replace Bradley Jones and Alfonso Spencer, both big time receivers, but Boggs said he's got guys ready and waiting to fill the holes. Last year, this group went 8-2, and saw a close, early exit in the postseason - something that's been the motivator to this point.
"We've had one of the best off seasons we've ever had," he said. "We say it all the time, but football really is a game of inches. We go 8-2 last year, and lose to a group that played in the State Championship, and an inch or two here or there and we're probably playing. We've been really close, we just have to continue, we won a bunch of close games, but you'd like to win them all and that's what we're striving for this year."
The Warriors travel to Montgomery, Alabama on the 12th to take on Marshall Academy in the Campton Bowl.
