This is the week football returns to Banks County High School for a new season.
The Leopards, under the direction of first-year head coach Philip Jones, host Social Circle High School for their home and season opener.
BCHS finished 7-3 last year but a new coaching staff has arrived for 2011. Social Circle, the opening opponent, is a member of Region 8-A and has not recorded a winning season since 2006.
The Leopards have been to numerous summer camps and have worked very hard under the direction of Jones. He and the coaching staff are pleased with the efforts the players have put forth this summer and pre season.
