Red Jackets say chemistry better in 2013

COLUMBUS, Ga. -

It's been a long time since the Jordan Red Jackets have won a football game.

Almost two-and-a-half years, to be exact.

But despite 24 straight losses, there is optimism at Jordan High, as head coach Jim Brown enters his second year.

"They seem to understand what I want a little better," Brown said. "Our practices are crisper and sharper, so those kind of things usually translate into other things, and if they do what they're supposed to do, we'll be a better football team."

Senior quarterback/defensive back William Harris said it took a little while to adjust to Brown last season.

"When a new coach comes in, we don't really know each other," he said. "So I guess we had to work it out, just a little bit."

Harris says the Red Jackets have big receivers that will be weapons, and a solid running game. But it may be chemistry that's the most important change.

"I feel like we're a better football team than we were last year," he said. "Last year, we really didn't know each other as much, but now we got a chance to know each other so I think everything is going to go out this year."

Jordan opens the season Aug. 30 against Hardaway at Kinnett Stadium.
