Coach’s Corner: Dublin looks to better 6-4 mark from a year ago
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Dublin Fighting Irish finished with a 6-4 record in 2015. Their season was marked with a tough five-point loss to Swainsboro, then a loss at Screven County in the finale which prevented them from reaching the playoffs.
The Irish will continue to play in Region 3-AA, but will have new opponents in Bleckley County, Dodge County, Northeast, Southwest, and Washington County. East Laurens is the only holdover.
Roger Holmes returns as head coach of the Irish, marking his 15th season on the sidelines with the school.
Dublin will go into 2016 with competition for the quarterback position. That competition will be led by Ramon Pitman, who started seven games at QB last season.
If Pitman isn’t the quarterback, Coach Holmes says he may just be the Irish’s best running back.
The Irish only gave up 14.4 points-per-game last season.
The defense will be returning a lot of experience, including college prospect DE Steven Linton and Moses Simmons.
Coach Holmes believes he will have a strong linebacker unit.
FIRST GAME: August 19th, at Tattnall County.
