Freeman ready to kick off fourth season at WCHS BY CAITLIN BOLAND

Warren County High School head coach Cherard Freeman is ready to start his fourth season with the Screaming Devils. Last year, the Screaming Devils went 3-7, winning games against Glascock County and Georgia Military College as well as an overtime win against Harlem. Freeman said he felt the team was doing well until a few key players were unable to play. “Everything started to go downhill after we lost a few key players,” Freeman said. WCHS lost four seniors from

last year’s team, but the team has 22 returning players and four new freshman. The key players for this season are the seniors who have been with Freeman for all four years including Timothy Seals, CarDrez Slocumb, Jarvis Collins, Kelveonta Veasley, Stedman Hall, Kentravious Brinkley, Jaquavious Fowler, Jarkevin Clark and Kerensky Brown. “During the offseason, we have gotten stronger and learned how to work as a team,” Freeman said. “The seniors are stepping up and being leaders, and I feel that the coaches have learned the kids’ abilities, and

the kids have learned us. We know how to work with each other.” Freeman has several goals for this year’s team going into the 2016 season. The first is to make the playoffs. Warren County will play in a split region this year along with Aquinas, GMC, Greene County, Hancock Central, Lincoln County and Washington-Wilkes on their side. The other side of Region 7A consists of First Presbyterian, Mt. de Sales, Stratford Academy, Tattnall Square, Twiggs County and
