Traditions Intact at Peach County
"I just hope we continue to play with a lot of enthusiasm," said Peach County football coach Rance Gillespie. "Football is a game of emotions, and hopefully we'll continue to play hard and execute." But winning isn't the only tradition alive in Fort Valley. Alonzo Bryant is continuing another one - the legacy at the quarterback position. The junior signal caller knows about the outstanding players who have come before him, and thinks he can live up to the standards set in the past. "I have some pretty big shoes to fill," Bryant said. "Guys like Jacquez Green and Jacques Rumph came out and did a great job here, so I know I have to work hard to fill their shoes." Last year, in his first season at the helm, Bryant rushed for more than 400 yards and passed for another 1,200. Heading into this weeks second round game with the Gamecocks, he's put up similar numbers. So with another season yet to come, Bryant appears poised to add his name to the legacy of great quarterbacks at Peach County High. "It feels good, but I have to remain down to earth," Bryant added. "I just have to keep working hard and making the highlights."
