The lone sopho­more on the team is Cameron Gregg. Laney said Gregg had a very im­pres­sive sum­mer and could see plenty of play­ing time right off the bat, per­haps even as a starter.

Two more fa­mil­iar faces, Corey Phillips and Matthew Scant­land, will be on the bench to as­sist Laney in the tran­si­tion. Phillips played along­side Laney dur­ing their days at LFO, while Scant­land prepped at Ring­gold. He will also coach the LFO ju­nior var­sity squad. Blake Farmer is also on staff as the team man­ager.

Laney said the key to the sea­son is sim­ply for his team to get into a groove.

“Once we got the foot­ball play­ers back, we only had about five days of prac­tice be­fore our first game,” he ex­plained. “We have to get in the flow early be­cause we’re go­ing to have some bat­tles be­fore we get into re­gion play. Hope­fully, we can gain some ex­pe­ri­ence and hope­fully we can use our speed and tempo to try and wear teams down. If we can do that, I think we can have some suc­cess.”
