“I’ve never had a quarterback like him, he can throw it through tight windows and he never panics” Those are the words of New Alexander Central Football Coach Butch Carter. Carter was referring to rising junior Gunnar Anderson who will be the Cougar qb this coming season.
Coach Carter spoke with me yesterday and he talked about the Spring drills that have been ongoing. He says he is “impressed in the 7 on 7 drills, we’ve done pretty well” The Blue and Gold will make their debut under Carter at Cougar Stadium August 19th against Watauga. Despite the fact that the season is more than 2 months away (64 days) Carter keeps repeating his marching order from the day he was announced as the new coach “We’re gonna win”
ACHS will return 1,000 yard rusher Bryson Godfrey also a junior this coming season. Godfrey has been all over the field in Spring workouts. He has lined up at wide receiver, slot receiver, and of course tailback. With a lot of potential fire power on offense, can the Cougars make a major improvement on defense? Last year the Cougars allowed more points than any season in school history and Carter says “We’re going to be better”
We will have a conversation with the new coach next week and air it on the radio and online. Keep checking for the times.
