Playing away from home was not a kind thing for the Apalachee High School football team in 2010.
While the Wildcats were undefeated at home, the team was 1-4 on the road. Perhaps the toughest setup was an upset loss to Cedar Shoals which would help prevent AHS from returning to the postseason. A new season arrives Friday and for the Wildcats and head coach Shane Davis, the longest regular season road trip is on tap. AHS travels to Habersham Central High School as the 2011 and Region 8-AAAA schedule begins.
“We better be ready,” Davis said. “It’s here. It’s one of those things where it seemed we just had several weeks to get ready and now we are under a week. We are to that point where the players are tired of practicing against each other and the coaches are tired of watching the players practice against each other.”
