Moultrie, Georgia - Colquitt County hosted its annual 7-on-7 competition attracting teams from South Georgia, North Florida and Alabama.

Jefferson County, Taylor County, North Florida Christian and Valdosta all made the hike to Moultrie, GA for the event.

The only thing missing from the tournament was shoulder pads and the ability to tackle. But there were a lot of new faces on and off the field here.

Steve Price was just announced as Taylor County's Head Football Coach and Athletic Director.

"I do believe that its been a very smooth transition," said Price, previously Taylor County's Offensive Coordinator. "The kids, because we knew 'em already, we're running the same system. You know, a lot of that we feel very blessed. It hasn't been real easy, I won't tell you that."

As for Colquitt County, they have to replace a quarterback that led them to the state title game last year. Junior Cole Segraves has been selected as the man under center.

"I think I'm ready. I'm ready to step in and prove that I can hold the spot, hold the position and do good," Segraves said.

"He's got some size, strength and some things," Colquitt County Head Football Coach Rush Propst said. "But, I'll just take - if he'll just do exactly what Tyler did, I'll be happy because Tyler had a really good career."

While teams have lost some really talented players to graduation, others are anticipating a huge season with the experience going into this year.

"They understand our system a lot better," said Rob Craft, now in his 2nd year as NFC's Head Football Coach. "Our staff is still intact from last year. So, another year of knowing our schemes, both offensively, defensively and the kicking game, will only help 'em."
