Greer Looks to Secure Their Second Win


Basia Scott, Staff Writer

As the state runner ups of 2018, Greer High School has a lot to prove this season. You can imagine the overall feeling of the whole school when they did not win in their first two regular season games. They have lost some very important parts of their team due to graduation, some were almost wondering if the team could match it’s caliber from last season without those key players. However, one thing you must know about Greer is that the people around here do not give up. 

The team stayed strong and did not stop working, despite losing their first two games of the season, and that work paid off last week, in the form of a win against West Side (36-28). This does not mean that the Yellow Jackets will be relaxing and basking in their victory all week. They are working hard this week! Coach Williams, coach of the wide receivers, said this concerning their practices this week, “we are focusing on conditioning, getting in better shape, and we are working hard to identify the different things that [Mauldin] do well, so we can stop them.”

“It gave everybody more confidence going into the rest of the season,” stated Miller DeArmond, a junior wide receiver, when asked about how the win affected the team. The players are clearly ready to go against Mauldin this week.The school is ready to support their Yellow Jackets and hope to see a good game. 

Concerning the rest of the season, Coach WIlliams said, “the biggest thing we have to do is be consistent, and that is on all sides of the football. We think that we have a good chance to win any game, as long as we can be consistent and continue to get better.” It is clear that the work does not stop after a win, and it will continue all season until it is over. These players are working on their consistency, conditioning, and most importantly their chemistry, which is something the 2018 Jackets definitely had. 

As the 2019 Yellow Jackets’ chemistry solidifies it is clear that there are talented players stepping up to fill the shoes that the 2018 Yellow Jackets’ left behind.
