MADISON, Fla. (WCTV) -- Madison County put together an impressive season in 2016, going 11-1 and making it to the 1-A state semifinals in 2016.
But, the Cowboys lost some key pieces on defense, including their top tackler and sacks leader in Calvin Kegler, who is now preparing for his first year with South Florida.
They do, however, return quarterback Travis Jay, who threw for more than 1,000 yards last year, and leading rusher Teryon Henderson, who ran for more than 1,300 yards a season ago.
Despite having two key returning playmakers, head coach Mike Coe knows it doesn't matter who the Cowboys have, as expectations are always high when it comes to the Madison County program.
"Honestly, we're just trying to get better each and every day. We're going to go out there and, I think if we stay healthy, we'll have a shot at the end to chase that dream (of a state championship," coach said. "Here, you're always shooting for the state title every year. It doesn't matter what year it is or what kids you have. That's just the nature of the beast being here."
