West Carroll football thinking turnaround in 2016

ATWOOD, Tenn — The West Carroll War Eagles come into the 2016 football season looking to shake things up in the loaded Region 7A.

The boys in Atwood won just 2 games last season, but think that tough year has given them drive to be better this season.

West Carroll PreviewPlayers said second year coach and West Carroll alumni, Josh Wolfe, gives his competitive nature to the rest of the team.

“He brings a competitive to football that we haven’t had in the past,” West Carroll senior offensive guard and linebacker, Colin Simmons said. “Its a lot more fun because we just come out here and its just like a dog fight everyday.”

Coach Wolfe said the War Eagles dealt with a number of injuries last season, but began to find their identity near the end of the season and hopes to bring that momentum into the new season.

“We went from a young team that lost a lot a kids that played the previous year and getting bit by the injury bug to this year we’ve got 7, 8, 9 guys that started on one side of the ball or the other,” Coach Wolfe explained.

West Carroll opens up their 2016 season against Hollow Rock-Bruceton in Week 1.
