HEADLAND, Ala (WDHN) — Another Wiregrass program that is starting fresh with a new coach, the Headland Rams. Toby Greene takes over the Rams after Danny Raines left the program, he led them to a 4-6 record in 2019. Headland is also moving up into the 5A classification.
However, in 2018 the Rams won ten games and that success is still fresh to this team. Coach Greene is going to try and bring that success back this season.
“We will use the momentum coach Raines left and try to build off that. They won ten games last year so they are used to winning,” Greene said.
Greene will make sure his team is ready to compete in all quarters. Many times a winning season can come down to two or three games and if the breaks go your way.
“We are preaching to the kids to try and finish. That is the difference of winning seven or eight games or winning four or five games,” said coach Greene.
Now moving up a classification, Headland will play teams that they normally would not see on a yearly basis.
Their first game of the season is against Abbeville. The only team in their new region that they faced last year was Pike Road.
So in 2020, the Rams will play Rehobeth, Andalusia, Charles Henderson, Greenville, and Carroll for the first time as regional opponents.
Now just three weeks away from the season, coach Greene wants his team to worry about bettering themselves each week and see where they are come October.
“Coming in under difficult and unique circumstances we just want to improve and get better. Be better on October 30th then we were August 28th,” Greene said. “Develop toughness, develop discipline, if we do those things we will be fine as the season goes along.”
