Countdown to Gridiron Glory: Reidland Greyhounds
Considering Reidland had won 13 games in the previous seven years, many would see last year's 4-6 season as a success. Not Greyhounds head coach Jon Hedges.
Hedges does believe, though, it certainly laid a foundation for what he hopes are bigger and brighter things in the future. In Hedges first season, the Greyhounds started out 3-1, but faded down the stretch finishing with five losses in the final six games missing the playoffs yet again.
He's hoping to change that this year. Numbers are at a ten-year high with 38 players on the roster. Hedges is hoping those numbers translate to wins. The Greyhounds have not won a district game in three years.
He says if things turnaround, it will start with a senior-laden offensive line. They'll be blocking for junior running back Collin Spink. Hedges says he will be their workhouse this season.
Reidland will open their season August 27 with county-rival Lone Oak.
