Two-a-Days: Garrett, Eagles Anxious to Get Back on the Field.
There are just 23 days remaining until the kickoff of the 2021 high school football season. But make no mistake, preparations for the upcoming campaign got underway months ago. And teams throughout northeast Georgia already are in full countdown mode.
With that in mind we spent the last couple of weeks catching up with programs around our area to get a feel for how spring practice went, how the summer is going and what coaches believe the fall will look like. Our "Two-a-Days" series honors those old-school grinding sessions that lead us out of summer and into fall, asking each area coach two key questions about the state of their respective programs.
Over the next two weeks, AccessWDUN's Friday Game Night will get you prepped for the start of gridiron action with responses from coaches throughout northeast Georgia. (Teams run in alphabetical order)...
RIVERSIDE MILITARY ACADEMY
The Eagles 2020 season never happened as the school decided to opt out of the campaign because of COVID-19. But that has not stopped coach Nick Garrett from feeling that the upcoming 2021 season could be a positive one on Riverside Drive.
We caught up with Garrett, now in his fifth season, to discuss excitement, numbers, and how the program has had to navigate after not participating last season, and what their expectations are as a result.
