We step into independent schools for tonight's countdown to kickoff feature. Up the road in Abbeville, the Abbeville Christian Generals hope to shake off a disapointing 2007 campaign.
The Generals hit the field under the direction of Head Coach Johnny Smith. The Generals were 2-8 last season. But, they have some veterans returning. 1400 yard rusher Gabe Newman is back for another year in the backfield.
Coach White says his team should be solid and has a shot at the playoffs. "Last year we had a group of mostly 9th and 10th graders that played. As opposed to them growing up a year. The maturity factor should make a dig difference for us this year."
The Generals open the season against Lowndes Academy in Week 1 on August 29th.
