In Class 1A, Region 2, the Florala Wildcats have had some problems lately. The Cats managed just a 1-9 record a year ago. That was the first season under Head Coach Stan Gooden.
He's back for another year and the players have a better idea of what he expects this time around.
"We're still going to be young,” Gooden said. “But, we had a lot of our younger kids get a lot of valuable experience last year. So, I guess you could say we have youthful experience. We had some major improvements we made in the off-season. We've gotten stronger, and faster and hopefully a little wiser."
Florala has Week-1 off, before starting the season next week at home against McKenzie.
