The Athens football team had its best regular season in school history last year, but after a surprising playoff exit, they're rebuilding and looking for a stronger 2012.
The Blue Jays have a lot to overcome this season. They went undefeated in the 2011 regular season, going 9-0, with the Cloverwood conference's top defense.
That didn't mean much after a surprising loss to Marathon in level one ended their season.
Now they'll have to start over from scratch with a brand new coach. The Bluejays gained eight times as many rushing yards as passing. With a young front five to open holes Athens' best offense may come through the air.
Athens will have a lot to adjust to, but don't be surprised if the Bluejays spread their wings a little more than they used to.
