WETUMKA COACH LOOKS FOR YOUTH TO LEAD

During his first season as coach at Wetumka, Wayman Potts led the Chieftains to a playoff berth. He said he likes how his team is shaping up for the coming season.

“We lost five seniors from last year's team,” he said. “We've got several young kids coming up who should be able to fill in.”

Wetumka is one of three B-4 teams to have earned a spot in the 2011 playoffs. Potts believes it will be hard for any team make it out of the district this season.

“Our district is one of the toughest in the state if not the toughest,” he said.
