Coach’s Corner: Jones County Greyhounds boast 19-5 record over last two seasons

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Jones County Greyhounds continue to make progress toward a tradition of winning after finishing with a 9-2 record for 2015.

The Greyhounds reached the playoffs but were defeated in the first round by Glynn Academy in Brunswick.

The school will also be playing in a new region, Region 4 in 5-A, which includes Dutchtown, Eagle’s Landing, Hampton, Locust Grove, Ola, Stockbridge, Union Grove, and Woodland Stockbridge.

This is the third season as head coach of JoCo for Justin Rogers. In his first two seasons at the helm, the Greyhounds have gone 19-5, which is the best two year span in the school’s history.

OFFENSE:

Jones County will be returning six starters from 2015.

One of those six includes third year starting quarterback Bradley Hunnicutt, whose leadership and understanding of Coach Rogers’ offense has been one of the keys to the team’s overall success.

Hunnicutt will be helped by wide receivers Dre Butts and fellow senior Nick Singleton.

DEFENSE:

Coach Rogers will have the unenviable task of replacing all 11 starters on defense come the first game of 2016.

The defense will be helped by returning players LB Demontae Traywick and S Darius Johnson.

FIRST GAME: August 18th versus Lee County at Mercer.
