Next week, high school football teams take the field for the first time as kick-off classics get underway. While the preseason doesn't mean anything statistically, Wewahitchka is aiming to kickoff the 2013 season on a high note, as the Gators wrapped up last year 3-7, and 0-4 in Class 1A District 2 play.
Head Coach Dennis Kizziah says despite the Gators being a young team this year, they do have a lot of experience up front on both offense and defense, but he is quick to pout out they have to get better on d.
Kizziah added the guys had a good offseason, and are excited to improve off last year's record.
"One year, like the year before, we were 3-1 in the district and made the playoffs, and of course, we lost some very talented players," he said. "Last year, we were 0-4, but we were in most of those ball games all the way. These kids have just come out and really grabbed the bull by the horns, and they don't like winning three ball games out of ten, none of us do. We're looking to really improve and hopefully make some noise."
Wewa opens up the year on Thursday, August 22nd when they head to Franklin County for their kickoff classic. Gametime is at 6:30/CT.
