GUYTON — After tasting victory just once in each of the last two years, the South Effingham football team is hungry for success. Gaining a place at the table of success, however, will be a challenge because the Mustangs lost a lot of experienced players to graduation after last season. Their biggest question is — who will step up and lead the way defensively? “You’re looking for that guy to come in and take that spot,” Mustangs head coach Donnie Revell said. “With someone that talented, it’s hard to replace. You don’t know until you put on the pads and play someone different.” Consistent playmakers like Makenly Newbill have graduated, leaving the door is wide open for someone to step up and lead the 2018 charge. “We have a lot of players that were spot players last year,” Revell said. “They had spot opportunities last year because a lot of our games were close. We have a really good junior class. "We want to see them mature and grow up.” See the Aug. 15 edition of the Effingham Herald for more details.
