When a team plays 10 region contests as the Winder-Barrow High School football team does this fall, it might be hard to put more of an emphasis on one game.
However, second-year Bulldogg coach David Wagner knows how important a win would be to his team this Friday as WBHS opens the 2011 campaign at Rockdale County. Wagner is just one of the few coaches who will admit it.
“Friday is important,” Wagner said. “You always want to win the first one. For us, it’s about establishing a level of confidence. When you are coming off a season like we had last year then a win doubles or triples in significance. There’s no doubt, to get that first win Friday would be huge.”
