Inside the 20 – Part 5
Brody McCoun and Jayden Hamilton were named captains of the Woodford County High School football team. McCoun and Hamilton will provide leadership for the young Woodford team this season as it enters regular season play. There will undoubtedly be questions answered after the first game of the season, and Coach Dennis Johnson hopes he likes the answers. “I want to see how guys respond to the opposition,” said Johnson. “I want to see how we compete.” As camp winds down with kids returning back to school, more leaders emerge on the field. “Our center, Jack Hill, has had a good camp,” said Johnson. “He’s a vocal leader on both the offensive and defensive line. “Freshman linebacker/running back, J.D. Alexander is also coming on strong,” said Johnson. “He’s a great athlete and is getting better each week. “ The Jackets are also getting healthier on the field with Ben Nash and Brennon Clark both returning to the field for practice. Johnson has stated in previous weeks that both players are vital parts of the team plan. “We also got Omar Renteria cleared to play,” said Johnson. “He is going to be a great offensive lineman for us. He is a senior who will come in and play left tackle.” The inexperience of the Woodford team is the biggest question going into the season. “Our offensive line is still young, but four of them have already battled as true freshman on the varsity team, so that will help us,” said Johnson. “If we play with great leverage, we will be fine.” The Jackets open play against Wayne County at the Bob Allen Pigskin Classic Saturday night in Danville.
