Blountstown, FL-- We start with another high school football preview as we head east to Calhoun County, home of the Blountstown Tigers.
Coach Greg Jordan and his guys coming off a very successful 2010 season, 9-1 in the regular season, followed by a first round playoff loss to Northview. The Tigers do have to replace quarterback Charles Buggs who graduated, sophomore Hunter Jordan will try to step up there. A big plus, the teams top two running backs return, Juwon Mosley, number ten there, and Marquell Thomas, who both ran for over 500 yards. Back in the question mark column for coach Jordan and his staff, the line of scrimmage, on both sides of the ball.
Blountstown Head Coach
"We lost four starters on the offensive side and we lost all three down guys on our 3-5 were seniors, so we lost all those guys. Our biggest concern coming into the year other than consistency at quarterback play is going to be down there on the front in the trenches. You know we've worked extremely hard down there. We got one senior that's starting and one junior, the other three spots could be a combination of one junior and two sophomores or all three starting sophomores. So that's some big holes that we gotta fill."
Blountstown will host Wewahitchka Thursday night in a preseason classic at 7. Tigers open the regular season a week from Friday at Holmes.
