The first season at Dougherty High didn't go so well for Corey Joyner. That was to be expected.
In year two, everyone in the Trojan program expects more wins.
A young team in 2012 gets a little bit older in 2013. They return their quarterback, Michael Whatley, and a large number of other starters on both sides of the ball.
Joyner is confident his team will be more adept at the fundamentals of football, like blocking and tackling. Whether or not that translates to a few more victories is something that will be played out on the field.
"Improve every practice. Improve every day, and then we'll just let the chips fall where they may," Joyner said. "I think if we play our best game we're gonna be in every game to win it."
