Woodrow Wilson's seniors ready to step up

Posted: Updated:

Woodrow Wilson's players have been playing under head football coach John Lilly for years.

"I've coached them since they were in kindergarten so we don't have to have that feel out process you know, we already know where everybody stands and what everybody's role play is on the team," said Lilly

The seniors know their role, each year there are leaders that emerge from the pack.  This year is no different.

Seniors Chase Hancock and Donte Nabors are ready to rise to the occasion.

"We lost a few seniors, a few big seniors, but you know, this senior class is going to step up like last years seniors," expressed Nabors.

Hancock added, "This is it, it's all or nothing and we're all in."

In two-a-days, hard work is a requirement.  Woodrow is a triple-A school, and their schedule is not easy.

"Well, you know the Mountain State Athletic Conference is the toughest conference in the state.  It's like the SEC, so we have to get ourselves prepared for a war each week," said Lilly.
