Coach Joe Billingsley tells us that he is putting emphasis on "finishing the game" this season. His GCHS Titans lost three regional games last year by a total of 7 points. Many of his experienced players are returning, including 2 key defensive linemen he lost to injuries early in the season last year. They'll be back to bolster the defensive line. The coaching staff is virtually intact this season and the team has had some good practice sessions. The Titans will play the second game of the season on Saturday this year, due to a scheduling conflict. The away game against Lee of Huntsville will be played at Milton Frank stadium with a 2pm kickoff on the afternoon of September 8th. In the teams first home game, there will be an opportunity for a little "pay-back" for that one point loss at Oxford last season. Overall, the coach expects to see an improved Titan squad this year.
