Coach’s Corner: Veterans Warhawks set to begin season at brand new Freedom Field
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Last season, the Veterans Warhawks only won four games, finishing with a record of 4-7.
Despite the losing record, Veterans still qualified for the playoffs but lost in the first round to Thomson by a score of 49-35.
The Warhawks are coming off their second straight loss in the first round, with their last playoff win coming in 2013.
The school will move from Region 2-4A to Region 1-5A, and will play against Bainbridge, Harris County, Thomas County Central, and Warner Robins.
This is David Bruce’s seventh season as head coach of the Warhawks, with a combined record of 24-40.
The Warhawks will need a quarterback and a new running back.
Previous QB Logan Byrd is now at North Carolina.
Coach Bruce will try to implement a new style for his offensive line, which will also be completely new from last year.
While Veterans will lack experience on the offensive side of the ball, they will have plenty of experience defensively as they return eight starters.
FIRST GAME: August 19th, at Northgate.
FIRST HOME GAME: September 9th, versus Houston County at the brand new Freedom Field.
