DEXTER - Coach Stacy Nobles who is fresh off a shutout win over East Laurens in a rainy Friday night scrimmage, is entering his third year leading West Laurens, out of region 2AAAA. Twelve returning starters and twenty seniors will help pace the Raiders who finished 5-5 last season to a possible playoff run in 2013.
"These kids want to be successful" says Nobles. "They want to get the mediocrity hump off their back and get rid of that label. Our region is tough and the only way to do that is to come out and perform every week, these kids know that. They know our scheme will work if they perform. It's a great group of kids to coach because of how hard they compete and their attitude is great. Hopefully we can keep that at a high level and get after it this week."
The Raiders open the season this Friday night on the road in Vidalia.
