VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- There wasn't a lot of winning on the Wildcat side of Winnersville in 2017, as Valdosta went 4-7 and posted its first losing season of the decade.
However, with nine returning starters on offense and a renewed focus, head coach Alan Rodemaker seems confident his squad can make last season just a blip on the radar.
"I think we put a chip on our shoulder and it carried through the offseason and I think honestly people will be surprised to hear me say this, I think we're less talented this year but I think our unity, our character, our team focus is a lot better than it was last year," Rodemaker explained.
With Rodemarker's son, Tate, set to start undercenter, the only remaining challenge is on defense, where VHS returns only two starters.
A question that needs an answer before the Wildcats can be back on the prowl.
