Many Thanks to Our Good Friends at Paulding County Today PCT23 (part of Paulding County Government) for putting together this video, on High School Football here in Paulding!
Are you ready for some High School football in Paulding County? It is right around the corner! Check out this 2014 High School Football Preview with PCSD Athletic Director Don Breedlove. He interviews each of the 5 head coaches from our Paulding County High Schools! This is a very informative and entertaining program created by Don Breedlove, Jeff Harkins, Randy Riggs, and Jody Martin.
Note: Coach Koester / South Paulding comes up at the 30:25 mark
Spartan Scroll - August 17th Coach Ed Koester
Are you ready for some football? The season kicks off for keeps this week. Players are ready, coaches are ready, the field and stadium is ready, the cheer team is ready, the band sounds ready, and from what we hear and see the fans are ready. The boys have prepared with great anticipation and their performances so far have shown improvement with each outing.
We are excited as we put in one more week of preparation for what could prove to be an exciting opener. Sprayberry is a much improved team with great speed and one of the nations top linemen. Coach Shackleford and his Yellow Jackets looked explosive in their scrimmage with North Paulding. We will need to be well prepared with all the kinks worked out since we plan to open the season with continued success.
Our freshmen numbers are up to just about forty and the sophomores through seniors are working with just over one hundred. The 9th grade will begin full time practice separate from the older kids this week and the JV will work within the varsity practice as a unit. The sophomore year in football is usually the most difficult season for high school kids. No longer are they protected as a 9th grader and yet maturity and physical abilities are still developing. This year of hard knocks is an important year in the development of physical and mental toughness. The energy they place into this year will go a long way toward their success as juniors and seniors.
With the last three days of practice before the opener we have planned a great evening on Thursday when we will get the first public look at"When the Game Stands Tall". This is a wonderfully written and produced story of California's De LaSalle High School and the nations longest winning streak. For 12 years De LaSalle did not lose a game. This motivational God centered story tackles many issues facing kids and teams today while capturing the dedication and belief necessary to win over and over again. The cost to us for this private viewing is $9.75 per seat in advance and $11 at the door. We must fill 215 seats, we are expecting all players 9th through 12th to attend and we are inviting the player's families and dates as well. Advance tickets can be purchased from all football coaches.
Spartan fans let's get this season off to a great start. See you at the movies and in the stands this Thursday and Friday.
