Wiregrass Two-A-Days: Rehobeth Rebels
REHOBETH, Ala. (WTVY) - The Rehobeth Rebels were one of the most surprising teams a year ago.
After 16 straight losses dating back to 2018, the Rebels decided enough was enough, putting together a 7-3 campaign and a berth in the AHSAA playoffs.
This season, the Rebels enter the year with a winning attitude.
Pate Harrison steps in as the Rebels new head coach after Donny Gillilan resigned over the summer. Harrison comes to Rehobeth after head coaching stops at Dale County and Elba.
Harrison hasn’t had much time to work with his new team, but knows with the right work ethic, Rehobeth has the chance to make some noise again this season.
“Everywhere I’ve been, winning has kind of taken care of itself,” said Harrison. “It’s kind of like a byproduct of hard work and effort and just being disciplined and doing the right things. That’s really what I’m preaching right now during our running and our workouts. Just making sure we get every rep and doing all the little things right. If we do all the little things, the big things will take care of themselves.”
The Rebels will open the 2020 season against Providence Christian.
