Q & A With Coach Rusty McIntyre

Coach Rusty McIntyre of Sequatchie County High School

Q. How would you characterize this year’s team?

A. We are a young team that works hard daily.

Q. What will be the keys to your success?

A. The ability of our entire team to play with great discipline and effort.

Q. Who will be your key leaders on the team?

A. Evan Griffith, Aaron McDaniel, Sam Evitts, Britt Chadwick, Austin Griffith, and Harrison Smith.

Q. What are your biggest reasons for optimism?

A. Although we are young and have talented kids, the biggest reason for optimism is the attitude and effort the players have when they attack each day.

Q. What can you build on from last year?

A. Last season we were able to host a playoff game in the first round. It did not turn out the way we wanted, so hopefully we can use that experience to improve.

Q. Any lessons learned from last year?

A. Hopefully we learned that we have to play a full four quarters. You cannot lose focus or energy anytime during a football game, against any opponent.

Q. Will we see anything different this year?

A. We will continue to try and showcase the strengths of our kids. At times that may look different than last year.
