Leading the way for the Trojans is second-year head coach Robby Pruitt. Under Pruitt, Coffee High School has a week already under their belt and with a big win over Whitewater High School, but the season is still early.

Last year Coffee finished the season with a 5-5 overall record and no playoff run. Coffee sits in the GHSA 1-AAAAAA region who is accompanied with number rank Colquitt County, and power house Valdosta High School, but Coach Pruitt is up for the challenge.

Coach Pruitt, "we might be close to the bottom of the region, but as we are improving, we feel we will be the team to beat."

Leading the way on the field is senior left tackle Wyatt Miller, who has already committed to University Central Florida for the 2014 football season. The only question for the Trojans is how well the quarterback will play out.

Entering the season, the quarterback from last season tore his ACL over the summer and will not be able to take the field. Filling the position is a new face that has never taken a varsity snap until this season, but Coach Pruitt can put his mind at ease after the numbers he put up from week one.

Coach Pruitt, "I was real impressed with our new quarterback who threw for three touchdowns and over 200 yards."

Finally, taking a look at the defense, they only have three returning starters, and the rest are either juniors or sophomores. However, as the team is coming together, age is becoming a nonfactor and coach Pruitt is climbing to the top of the region as they move forward.
