2013 GridIron Gazette Simply Put “New Faces” September 12, 2013 Jackson County Times - Page 2 Each year about this time football fans get all worked up as the new football season kicks off. And each year we are hoping this will be the year in which our favorite teams have a great year, make the playoffs and maybe even win a state championship. And the 2013 season is no different, with one notable exception. Most years local football fans deal with one or two new coaches coming into our area. But the 2013 season is markedly different in that respect. This season our county will field ten high school varsity, junior varsity and middle school football teams. And of those ten teams, eight of them will have new Head Coaches. In my eight years working the The Times and in all my years of following Jackson County football I can’t recall a year in which 80% of our Head Coaches are new. Listed below are the new Head Coaches as well as the returning Head Coaches. New Head Football Coaches For 2013 Season Marianna High School Varsity & JV Mark Beach Graceville High School Ty Wise Sneads High School Varsity – Bill Thomas JV – Bruce Hubbs Marianna Middle School Brad Cross Grand Ridge School Alan Cox Graceville Middle School Fred Fountain Returning Head Football Coaches For 2013 Season Cottondale High School Varsity - Mike Melvin JV – Deemetrius Beachum As you can see Cottondale is the only school that has not had drastic changes at the coaching level. Mike Melvin returns as the Head Coach for the varsity Hornets. Melvin begins his 16th year as the Head Hornet and that alone is quite an accomplishment. Working with one of the smaller school populations in our county, and in Northwest Florida for that matter, Melvin is as good as they come at getting the most out of the limited number of players that he has to work with. This year’s Hornets squad will field between 20-22 players. That means a lot of guys playing both ways and doesn’t leave much room for depth. And injuries, which can be devastating to any size squad, become critical when dealing with such small numbers. Two of our varsity programs are now on their third coach in three years. Marianna hired Mark Beach away from Graceville and the Tigers filled in Beach’s vacant spot with Ty Wise. I’ve had the opportunity to watch both coaches in action on the practice fields and I can tell you that our county is fortunate to have these two young energetic men patrolling the sidelines. Down Sneads way Bill Thomas has taken the helm for the Pirate’s program and he too seems to be a young and energetic coach. All three of these men Clint Cox - Sports Editor have a vast amount of coaching experience and it shows on the sidelines. But will it translate right away to wins on the football field? That is to be determined. Turnover at the Head Coach spot usually results in a period of transition and doesn’t always mean wins right away. Beach bucked that trend last year at Graceville, winning eight games and making the playoffs. And Marianna’s one year Head Coach last year, Tim Cokely, also produced an eight win season for the Bulldogs. So there is nothing to say that it can’t be done again at those schools. At the feeder programs (junior varsity and middle schools) we also a fresh crop of new coaches. And they likewise have the challenge of molding their young teams to their style of play. As usual folks frequently ask me how I think all the programs will do this year. I learned a long time ago that predicting wins and losses was not something that I seem to be very good at. Some years I would think the county was down in football, only to be pleasantly surprised at some of the successes. Other years I thought the county was loaded and we seemed to limp our way through the season. Here is what I will say, at least about the varsity programs. Graceville, Cottondale and Sneads are all in the same district, with Vernon and Wewahitchka. I think Jackson County will claim the district championship and the runner up spot in that district. Marianna has a daunting task ahead of them. They have some talented young athletes but they also have a schedule that is absolutely brutal. Gone are the likes of traditional opponents like Chipley, Blountstown, Port St. Joe, Holmes County and others. In their place the Bulldogs have the likes of Wakulla, Rutherford, Bay and Chiles. Even those smaller schools that remain on the Bulldog’s schedule are tough (Class 1A State Champs Northview and Class 2A powerhouse North Florida Christian). And in their district they dropped Taylor County and picked up Florida High. Throw in juggernaut East Gadsden and the Bulldogs have their work cut out for them. If Beach can get the Bulldogs five or six wins and into the playoffs he should be selected as Coach of The Year. Here is what I do know for sure though about this season. It will be fun, if for no other reason than it is football time again. But I also think it will be interesting because, Simply Put, we have a whole lot of new faces.
