Look­out Val­ley’s Larry Mccul­lough

is a light­ning­fast ball-han­dler who can take it to the rim or pen­e­trate the lane be­fore find­ing open team­mates. He is the first for­mer Yel­low Jacket to ever join the Bob­cats.

Stephen­son said that 6-foot-3 for­ward Eric Byrd has been an­other big sur­prise for the Bob­cats. The hard-work­ing and coach­able Byrd made the most of his se­nior sea­son at Ridge­land High School and hopes to con­tinue his solid play at Ge­or­gia North­west­ern at ei­ther a num­ber 3 or 4-spot.

The fi­nal Bob­cat, fresh­man guard Jeremy Wil­son, comes to Ge­or­gia North­west­ern by way of Chelsea High School in Birm­ing­ham, Alabama. Wil­son is an­other very fast player that can shoot and han­dle the ball.

Johnny “Bud” Todd and Mark Wieden­ben­ner will once again be back to as­sist Stephen­son from the bench.

“This team re­ally seems to al­ready be to­gether and it seems like a re­ally smart team,” the vet­eran coach added. “Like I said, it will just come down to how fast they can ad­just to the col­lege game. They have to be able not only to run plays, but han­dle the phys­i­cal­ity of it. The faster they ad­just, the quicker we’re go­ing to see what we have.”

The Bob­cats opened the new sea­son this past Satur­day at South­ern Cres­cent Tech in Grif­fin, Ga., while their first home game will be on Nov. 20 (6:30 p.m.) against the Ten­nessee Wes­leyan Univer­sity ju­nior var­sity squad. All home games will be played at the Rossville Ath­letic Cen­ter.
