Calvary Christian ready for Year 3 of program

August 25, 2013 

Coach: Brian Osborne, third year, 9-11

Assistant coaches: Brian Osborne, offensive coordinator; David Spitzmiller, defensive coordinator; Floyd Clements; Brandon Walker; Dillon Bigham; Jordan Avant; Derek Bigham; Will Chambliss; Robert Carter; Jeremy Walker

Homefield: Britt David Park

2012 record: 5-6, lost 35-13 to Loganville Christian in second round of ICSGA playoffs

Region: ICSGA South

Good news: It's Year 3 for the program, and coach Brian Osborne was able to jump right in when the team started practicing for the season. He joked that he didn't have to teach players what a football looked like anymore. Last season, despite the larger learning curve, the Knights still made it to the semifinals. Despite losing a couple of key players, like running back Duncan Newton, linebacker Xavieus Duncan and quarterback Jacob Ammons, the team is much further ahead in its preparation this season.

Bad news: There's really not a whole lot when you consider how new this program still is. It is breaking in a new quarterback and doesn't return any rushing yards from last season, however, so that will certainly present a challenge.

Our take: The offensive line is strong and the players are more comfortable with what they are doing. There has been less teaching and more practicing what they already know. The players and Osborne said they want a championship this year. Given the progression so far, that should be the goal.
