The No. 2 ranked 6U Acworth Warriors are showing no signs of slowing down under new Head Coach Reggie Eleazer. After winning the North West Georgia Super Bowl and the B2C Championship at 5U in 2017, Coach Eleazer doesn’t expect a drop off transitioning from defensive coordinator to head coach. The “Hit Squad” is currently 5-0 on the season with their best ball ahead of them.
“Our focus this fall is building a team from top to bottom that can compete against anyone. This year we’re bigger, faster, stronger, and deeper than last season”, explained Coach Eleazer. “The motto for 2018 is good, better, and best. We want to be good at what we’re doing right out of the gate win lose or draw. Then we want to trend towards being better, to start executing what we’re learning in practice by the middle of the season. When the time comes to defend our championships we want to be at our best hitting on all cylinders.”
Unlike many teams in a minimal play league, there is no perceived weakness on this Acworth squad. “We have 16 kids on the roster and every player on the team can compete with anyone.” Coach Eleazer stated adamantly. “We have tough minded players at every position. As I go through game film week to week, I can identity a new player each week standing out. A lot of coaches will tell you they have a key player, but I have a top 16.”
“Our strategy is to overwhelm teams. To use our athletic capabilities and our maturity to overload teams. We’re a disciplined team so we go into every game knowing we’ll have minimal mistakes. We’re going to execute across the line. I can give glory to my running backs but if you see what the offensive line does its incredible. I can give glory to my linebackers but if you see what the defensive line does it’s a field day for them. Its every kid on both sides of the ball”, explained Coach Eleazer.
“The first goal is to win the NWGYFL Super Bowl. Our responsibility to the organization is to win that championship. Our second goal is to win the B2C Championship. If there’s a team ranked higher than us nationally after that, we’ll settle it when the time comes.”
