JASON STRICKLAND WARE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL COACH
Daniell Warren introduced Jason Strickland WCHS Football the coach who said he is excited but not yet satisfied for the season.
Ninth grade game was a win for WCHS. He had 55 ninth graders apply. Two middle schools are doing wonderful. Waycross is undefeated for the fourth time. The new Agricultural facility has helped improve the stadium workouts. They start this year at Statesboro (they won). Then Homecoming game. New Hampstead is good. The last game in Wayne County. The success he said is to (win games and (2) to practice morning and night! Players need role models on life: how to respond to get events to come our way. Learn by experience to get better responses. Can control some of the game and some are out of control. Got to feel good of experiences controlled and be proud of what was done. Jason Whittaker had done a good job of getting players in shape with Olympic training. The community has helped by feeding the team before and after practice to have energy. They are keeping track of students’ class status. He uses Good Purpose: I Can, I Will, I Know.
Have good expectations and working goals. ATTITUDE chosen gets you in charge.

Their overall record is 63-18 and 13 Freshmen this year. Waycross Middle School is bringing much potential to their team but takes two years to build champion winning. Wayne County and Statesboro are strong teams. Thanks, Mandy!
COACH KINGSTON CLARK MEN’S BASKETBALL
Coach Kingston Clark said his goal is to give good opportunity for boys to play and grow. He gives them an open opportunity to play.
God gives him an opportunity to coach. He has ten former members now coaching teams. Two to three basketball scholarships are available compared to one-hundred for football players to seek! He is glad to be back in South Georgia his home. He went away, was miserable and is now home. He wants young men to know him as a person who loves God. But, players have to have a “heart” to go to work for success. Thanks, Coach Clark!
