PRE-SEASON: Mustangs featured in the MDJ!

Kennesaw Mountain coach Andy Scott understands how close the Mustangs were to making the state playoffs last season.

Kennesaw Mountain dropped a 35-33 decision at North Paulding to begin Region 4AAAAAA play, and two weeks later, the Mustangs lost 28-25 at home to Harrison.

A difference of five points prevented Kennesaw Mountain from being 2-0 in the region standings, so Scott’s focus during spring practice was keeping the team from having to deal with close losses.

“The biggest thing for us that we’ve been working on is just to try to become a more competitive team,” Scott said. When we took over three years ago, (the Mustangs) were 1-19. It’s a constant matriculation of trying to get better each year. We’ve gone 4-6, 2-8, 4-6, hoping to try and build on that momentum.

“This class will be our fourth class coming. We have a really good nucleus right at 27 seniors. Kids that have been in our program, so that’s been a big positive for us.”

Practices were very physical, according to Scott, who will have to replace several skill position players, including quarterback Nigel Hayes. With 85 kids in attendance, evaluating who will fill those roles has been a process.

“We’ve had some kids who have been stepping up (to play the skill positions),” Scott said. “Obviously, Kyle Wooten is the next in line to be the quarterback. He’s had a really good spring after finishing up with lacrosse and joining us. Adrian Boyd, a rising sophomore, has really excelled and done a good job. Devin Steed, who was one of our A-backs last year has moved to B-back, and I think that’s a positive move for him.

“Some other kids who have played well are Octavian Wicks at another running back position. We’ve had some good skill kids on the edge at receiver in Jack Ozmer and Brandon Fitzgerald. Those kids have really stepped up on the offensive side. What we have to do is focus on those skill and those perimeter positions.”

Offensive linemen Zack Edgar, Chris Reynolds, Daniel Turner and Russ Hiett return to provide strength at the line of scrimmage.

The Mustangs bring back six players defensively in defensive ends Jordan Cid and Chris Reynolds, nose tackle A.J. Johnson and linebackers Logan Craig, Justin Scott and Carson Lake.

Seeing the players develop was rewarding for Scott.

“The biggest thing I’ve liked from this group is probably their competitiveness,” he said. “We scrimmage a lot, probably more than a lot of other teams just based on what we do offensively and defensively. But, just the competitive spirit, always trying to make sure the other side doesn’t score or hold us out. So, we’ve had a really competitive spring, and it’s been one that we’ve really enjoyed. We just want them to be tough and physical.”

Kennesaw Mountain will continue to run the ball and work play-action pass out of it. Hayes finished his career with the most touchdown passes, most passing yards and the longest touchdown pass in school history.

“We still throw the ball, but we’re going to be a run-first team all-the-time,” Scott said. “Everything is built in, offensively. You have to play to your kids’ strength. But, I think there is enough within our offensively philosophy to highlight each kid, and I think that’s what good coaches do. You try to take your system and cater it to your kids. Not, the other way around.”
