Center Jimmy Haynes is the youngest as a sophomore, but he started for the Redskins in 2011. Senior Tay Smith will line up at left guard and junior Tevin Burke will play right tackle.
Lining up at tight end, Jordan Lill will be Howard’s biggest target at 6-foot-7. The offensive group has done well in its transition between the two offenses, picking up the I-formation, option offense.
“They’ve been great,” Adams said. “The kids have been very receptive to the new stuff. The kids are excited whenever you have something new. As long as you put it out there to them, if they un- derstand it, they’re going to take to it.
The kids have done that, now it’s about how you execute.” Also easing the Redskins’ players’ transition was the fact that they knew an improvement was needed over last year.
“Last year, we didn’t win a game and the guys, they knew when they brought Sebree in we were going to change and they were prepared for that,” Adams said. “I think we should have some positive outcomes this year.”
Social Circle will look for its first winning season since 2006 in a new region as it steps up from to 8-A to 8-AA after the Georgia High School Association’s reclassification. The Redskins begin play in their new region when they host Rabun County Sept. 28.
Social Circle hired Ronald Sebree to bring a turnaround and a winning season to a struggling Circle Social program. Sebree was retired after serving as Athletic Director for DeKalb County Schools, and began his coaching career at Social Circle in 1981.
Social Circle’s seniors are Tay Smith (53), Jake Howard (8), Mike Kelly (44), Antonio Hooks (72), Tanner Preston (12) Jordan Lilll (85) and Kaleel Smith (42).
