Countdown to Kickoff 2012: Chiefs seek to snap streak

The North Myrtle Beach Chiefs will kick off the 2012 varsity football season this Friday night on the road at Waccamaw High School.

Still looking for their first win under Head Coach Perry Woolbright, the Chiefs consider this year a redemption year. They will look to build upon the success of the JV team and hope that translates into success or the varsity squad. Last year’s Junior Varsity team went 7-1 on the year, only losing to Loris

The Chiefs return 8 starters on offense and 7 starters on defense.  Returners include junior running back Delonzo Williams, with 2 years of varsity play under his belt. Junior Will Hardwick and sophomore Kendrick Furness will battle for the Quarterback position. The Chiefs also look for increased production from seniors Eric Baker, Brandon Moore, and Gerodie Graham.

Woolbright commented “The good thing is we’ve been a real young team the past two years. We’re still going to be young this year. We’ll be a sophomore and junior team, rather than a freshmen and sophomore team.

The good thing about being young, a lot of times those kids have short term memories. They are focused on the now.  As a team, we’re focused on this season, and hopefully get things turned around.”

Woolbright continued with “Offensively we have 7 or 8 starters coming back. Everybody that is playing on offense saw some action on Friday night last year.  We really don’t have any newcomers. “

The Chiefs will open with Waccamaw, coming off a 2-9 season last year that struggled under former Georgetown Head Coach Tyronne Davis. Waccamaw starts sophomore quarterback Sloan Drummonds and features a run heavy offense that relies on sophomore running back JJ Sherman.

The Chiefs will follow the season opener with three straight home games. Their first home matchup will come on August 24th against the Loris Lions. That’s followed by home games against West Brunswick and Mullins, and then Green Sea Floyds on the road before opening region play on September 28th at Socastee High School.

All games will broadcast live on WRNN- 99.5 FM with live streaming video available at nmbchiefs.com.
