OPELIKA, Ala. — The Hornets are #1 in Class 5A in the preseason poll and with good reason.
For one, they’ve got La’damian Webb on the team. The incoming senior broke just about every rushing record in Alabama last year and led the team to their first ever state championship. Webb was the first junior to ever be named Alabama’s Mr. Football. He has committed to Mississippi State.
We talked to coach Rob Carter this week and his game plan is pretty simple, get Webb the ball and play good defense, But most importantly, put last year behind them and focus on what’s to come.
“We got to worry about us and not how people have us ranked. And really not as much as our competitor as are we running things right. Defensively, offensively, special teams. We have to do the things right daily,” said Carter.
The Hornets kick off their season at home on September 1 against Greenville.
