Manchester football hungry for more as high school season approaches

Posted: Updated:

The Manchester Blue Devils are going into 2014 like a team that went 4-7 the year before, not 7-4 with a playoff berth.

Tanner Glisson is entering his second year as head coach and has his sights set high.

“We really want to see the improvement we made in the weight room,” Glisson said. “We want to see the improvement we made in how we practice and how we play, our effort, our level of intensity.”

Manchester was one-and-done in the playoffs in 2013, falling to Calhoun in the first round. The goal now is to get further.

“This season we’re expecting bigger and better things than we had last year,” said senior running back Hunter Foster. “We have a lot of returning players and high hopes and ambition, and we’re ready to get after it.”

Simply, Glisson and his Blue Devils can’t wait for the season to start.

“We’re excited to get the season going, like most people are,” he said. “[We’re] excited to see how much progress we’ve made from year one to year two.”

Manchester opens the season Saturday, Aug. 30 against Charlton County at Mercer University.
