Tigers hit the field in pads

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The Carver Tigers began a new era on Wednesday, with the first full-pads workout of the spring.

It was the first full-pads practice with Joseph Kegler as head coach, after Dell McGee left the school in March to take a position with Auburn University.

"We're just going to keep it rolling," Kegler said. "'If it ain't broke, don't fix it.' We're going to keep working hard, keep doing the right thing in the classroom and on the field, and everything else will take care of itself."

Kegler, who was offensive coordinator for the Tigers under McGee, is also tasked with grooming a new quarterback after last year's starter Torrance McGee transferred to North Cobb.

The player he's tabbed for that job is rising sophomore Jawon Pass, listed at 6'4", 190 pounds last season. He played sparingly as a freshman, but all signs point to Kegler handing him the keys in 2013.

"Right now, Jawon Pass, upcoming sophomore, great kid, been working hard," Kegler said. "He played for us last year. We're really expecting a lot from him this year."

Despite his youth, Pass does not seem intimidated.

"[I'm a] sophomore, young, but I just have to work," Pass said. "I'm going to get it done. I'm ready."
