      The Tift County Turnaround

      It was a difficult start in Tift County for Head Coach John Reid last season.

      The Blue Devils went 2-8 in one of the toughest regions in the state, 6A-1. Heading into his second year with the program, there TMs much more optimism.

      Their starting quarterback, Ryan Wedgeworth, is a returning starter and has worked hard to improve during the offseason. The combination of turnover on the coaching staff and an 0-6 region record made training easy.

      Our workout program was really good, Wedgeworth said. We brought all these coaches in and they added a lot of fuel on the fire.

      Several of the new assistants have coaching experience at the college level. Still, it will be tough to turn in a winning season in a region with powerhouses like Camden County and Colquitt County.

      You take it one down at a time, Reid said. See if you can put some games together back to back. I think that TMd be good for this program.
