GRAY - This year, folks that go to Jones County football games won't get the chance to stand along the fence rooting on the Greyhounds. They've put in new stands called the "Barking Lot."
That's one big change, but Head Coach Dwight Jones hopes his kids play with the same intensity they had last year.
For the first time since the '90s, the Greyhounds made it to the post-season. Overall, they had a 7-4 record.
Jones says they are a lot younger this year, but he's made some changes.
He says he's got a squad of good kids, but the trick is to make them mean, think more along the lines of junkyard dogs!!!
"We got a little drill called small ball which is just a four-on-four toughness drill, probably more contact than we've had in the past," Jones said. "We've been a little shy about getting people hurt, but we realize people can get hurt doing anything, so if we're going to get hurt, we're going to get hurt going full speed and making contact right now."
The Greyhounds open up against Alcovy at home on August 30th.
Jones says in addition to the bleachers, they will also be sporting a new scoreboard on the field.
