COCHRAN- Just down the road in Cochran, the Bleckley County Royals are looking to compete for the region 4AA title this season.
Coach Tracy White leads the Royals, for the second straight season. He returns 12 starters, of which six are playing both ways. White says 9 seniors will help pace the Royals on Friday nights as they hope to make a return to the region title game again this season and improve on a successful 8 -3 record.
"Our pluses are I think we have some good skill people", says White. "We feel like we have good speed but inexperience on the offensive line. That's where we're looking to plug in some guys on the O line and hopefully get our playmakers out in the open field and see what they can do for us. Everything we did last year, we want to do one better and hopefully more."
Bleckley County hosts Hawkinsville Friday night at Royal Stadium.
