DUBLIN - Over in Dublin, Trinity is preparing for another playoff run but this time under new leadership from a familiar face.
Two years removed from retirement as Bleckley County's head coach, Sam Barrs has stepped into the head role for the Crusaders, where he served as an assistant with the GISA school last season.
Barrs will lead 9 seniors and 11 returning players from a team that went 8-4 in 2012. He feels the chemistry of the team is one of their brightest spots.
Barrs explains, "This bunch likes each other. They like hanging around each other. We only have 25 players so that's obviously going to happen but they genuinely care. You talk to any NFL or college team when your players genuinely care about one another and support each other and hang out with each other, you usually are going to have a good football team if you have some talent and these kids have some talent."
Practice time is almost over for Trinity, they kick off Thursday night with Sherwood Christian out of Albany to begin the season.
