Coach Comments

 

“We are who we are.
We run the same plays as we did last year.
Some if it depends on the individual talent
and who is healthy at the time.
I don’t think we’ve changed our philosophy on
offense based on who we have in the backfield.”

Kell Head Coach Derrick Cook
(from Marietta Daily Journal,
September, 2012)

 

 

 

“Despite our overall record, the truth is that
most of our goals remain very attainable.
We're 1-1 in our SubRegion,
so we still have a lot to play for,
such as a winning record,
the Region title, and
a trip to the playoffs.”

Sprayberry Head Coach Billy Shackelford
(October, 2012)
