Said Isaac:”We have 10 returning starters so not a whole lot. I mean I’m the only new starter so. Not a whole lot really.”

Said head coach Justin Barnes:”We are kind of anchored by our offensive line this year. We have four seniors starting on that side of the ball. Senior running back in Hayden Maynor. Well hopefully we are going to be explosive offensively. If we can do that, and like I said, we’ll be fun to watch.”

Coach Barnes hopes it doesn’t take too long before his defense is fun to watch as well.

Said Justin:”We do have to find some guys defensively. We lost nine seniors on that side of the ball. We’ve got to grow up a little bit on that side of the ball.”

The Trojans are the reigning region champs, and they don’t want to give up that title without a fight.

Said Maynor:”I like the pride. The pride some of them have to go out there and want to go back and want to go back and be region champs..Want to be in the first round playoffs.”

Said Isaac:”Determined because defending region champs. Trying to go get it and get deeper in the playoffs this year.”

Said Justin:”That’s really the biggest thing is depth right now, so we’ve got to stay healthy. I think we have a chance to make a good run at things if we stay healthy.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
