Drew Fowler has been coaching football a long time, 14 years. The previous 13 he’s been an assistant. But now he’s running the program at Chatt Co.
Fowler is hoping to improve a team that finished 3-7 in 2015. The Panthers moving down to class 1A this season. But Chatt Co. faces a unique challenge being zoned so close to Ft. Benning.
Students frequently leave in the middle of the school year when their families are relocated, so the turnover rate is high. But that challenge also presents opportunity for players that relocate here.
Moving to a new city and a new school can be intimidating for teenagers. But football is universal wherever you go, and sweating it out at practice in the Valley heat, is a great way to make friends.
