What do you think will be the biggest benefit to joining the GHSA?
“We believe that there will be many benefits to joining GHSA. One of them that we are excited about is a greater number of visiting fans. Our home crowd is always fantastic, but when teams are having to travel 2,3, and even 4 hours away, it is difficult to fill the opposing side. Now, our furthest game is about 45 minutes away, and our opponents need to travel about the same.”
How involved was your school community (parents, alumni, supporters, etc.) in the decision?
“We involved quite a good group in the decision. Our head of school and athletic director did a fantastic job of bringing the idea to our board members. They also did extensive research to make sure that this was the best fit for us.”
Do you know much about any of the other teams Class A of the GHSA.
“I’ve coached at all different levels of high school here in Georgia. I know a lot about the schools in this area, Carrollton, Columbus, etc. I’m usually the type of person that focuses on the game in front of us.”
For those who are not familiar with your program, what should they expect to see from the Hawks?
“We are a team that plays fast. Our kids do a great job of our off-season program. That is something that sets us apart. We are always playing with 2 way players and they do so at a very high level. They understand the energy it takes to play how we do and they train to prepare themselves. Our kids work hard and play hard.”
