Southwest GA Football Coaches speak at Kick-Off Luncheon

Posted: Updated:
TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Seven coaches across Southwest Georgia spoke today at football season Kick-Off Luncheon at Tifton Regional Community Center.

The six coaches were from Tift County, Tiftarea Academy, Worth County, Fitzgerald High, Irwin County, Coffee High and Turner County.

One coach in particular who is excited to get back on the gridiron is Fitzgerald Head Coach Jason Strickland. Strickland's Purple Hurricanes get knocked out of the playoffs last year to eventual champion Jefferson in triple overtime.

"We were sick about it all year," Strickland said. "We kept telling the kids only thing that will get you past that is putting on the pads and playing again."

Free medical screenings and a medical seminar were conducted prior to the event.

Stay tuned to WALB for much more on the event.
