They're used to being one of if not the best team in the state, it goes with the territory when you suit up in a blue devil uniform.
"Expectaions is the key word at Statesboro High School." says head coach Steve Pennington, "We have had a great run the last 8 years and we expect to the run keep that going."
"I expect us to go all the way." adds tight end, Sherrod Natson.
Defensive lineman, Deangelo Tyson agrees, "I expect us to go all the way. We have the tools to do it and we got to work hard and play hard to do it and work as a team."
They must work extra hard this season because last year the unexpected happened, Statesboro was bounced out of the playoffs in the first round, leaving a bitter taste in their collective mouths this off season.
"Us losing in the first round of the playoffs last year, put us down a little bit," says Tyson. "We want to strive and go to the state championship we know we can do it. And it's a possibility.
"We have a lot of people who've been in the program the last two or three years." says Pennington, "That reduces the amount of teaching therefore we can move a little bit faster than normal, so we're on a good pace right now."
"oh 'm ready! I'm excited." exclaims Natson.
The Blue Devils are ready for some football are you????
