DALE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Let’s take a look at what the Dale County Warriors have in store this season!
Last year under first-year Head Coach Luke Tucker the Warriors went 4-6 missing their first playoff appearance in three years.
But when talking about players like senior Memphis commit, Christian Ross, Tucker knows he has weapons.
“We’re a young team but with a lot of really good athletes,” Tucker said. “I believe that we can throw the ball well and have really good seniors. We can make some really good plays.”
Coach knows, with only five returning starters, three on offense, and two on the dark side of the ball. The growth for the youngins is more physical than mental.
“The culture here is good,” Coach Tucker explained. “A lot of hard-working kids just need a lot of weight room and discipline.”
Around ten seniors take the field this season for the Warriors, with Ross being the one to look at this season.
When asked what separates Christian Ross the recent Memphis University commit? “Size, he runs well too and he has unbelievable hands,” Tucker said. “He’s got all the tools to be a college football player.”
The Dale County Warriors pop off their season at Ariton on August 19th.
And speaking of August 19th, make sure you tune in at 10:15 p.m. for the kickoff of The Extra Point High School Football show right here on WDHN!
