Enterprise Football season preview 2022

COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — In his 23rd season, Ben Blackmon is no stranger to the area, coaching at Greenville from 2007-2010 just a quarter over an hour up the street, so he knows that this is a renovation, not a Bob the Builder job. 

“I think it’s building on the tradition that’s here, creating a mindset that our kids can be successful. And just going every day into a daily grind of how we can get better each day,” said Blackmon.

It’s said that the man who works on his craft every day gets seven times better than the man who grinds only once a week. 

It’s the extra 10 feet on a sprint, the extra effort in the hit, the extra pride in the stands. 

“How you approach everything you know is how you should do anything you know and how you come in in the morning, how you dress, how you approach the weight, how you approach every Rep in practice, just trying to the best is our standard. It’s trying to be that best every single day and in everything we do. Our goal is to be the best we can be. 

Blackmon stated that seven on seven has prepared this team a lot for the challenge they face; up against the Bay High Fighting Tornadoes of Florida on Aug. 19.
