New head coach not slowing down the rams

The Worth County Rams started this week to prepare for their first regular season game against Swainsboro, and it was high intensity.

Leading the way for the Rams is first year head coach Jason Tone and he is bringing a new offensive and defensive seam to Worth County.

Tone says "the system I am using is really fast pace and real physical."

All of his seniors seem to be getting the picture quickly, which is good because they are needed to help the under classmen. The biggest question for the Rams is the young defense.

Most of whom are under classmen who make up the defense, but Coach Tone has confidence in his young guys.

Leading up to their first game they do have a slight disadvantage with Swainsboro, who did not play in a scrimmage game due to the heavy rain, so Coach Tone and company lack any game film to help prep the Rams for kickoff.

All that aside Coach Tone does know a little bit about the coach for Swainsboro and has an idea what to expect come next week.

Coach Tone say he is "expecting a physical and tough team, who runs the ball a lot."

This game will be a true test for the young defense and the Rams will open their season on the road this Friday against Swainsboro.
