Florala’s No. 1 goal this season is to win more games, Wildcats coach Daniel Allison said.
“When I came (into the program), I think they had won two games the previous season,” Allison said. “Last year, we had five wins. Our goal this year is to get better game by game.
“If we can get better game by game, hopefully the wins will fall in place,” he said.
The Wildcats just got done playing in a tournament at Georgiana, where they went 0-2. FHS’ most recent loss was 75-56 to Class 4A Booker T. Washington on Tuesday night.
Allison said scheduling bigger schools is essential for games down the road.
Florala will compete in Class 1A, Area 2 this season. The Wildcats will have rival Pleasant Home, Geneva County and Kinston to go through to have a chance at the post season.
Allison said he doesn’t know much about what Kinston or Geneva County will have this year, but PHS will be with who he thinks is the area’s best player — Lance Davis.
“Last year, I know Pleasant Home lost some kids, but they have Lance Davis,” the coach said. “I think (PHS) coach (Jerry) Davis will build his team around Lance. They’ll be tougher than what people think.”
Before area though, FHS will have to take each game one at a time, Allison said.
The Wildcats are led by six seniors — Austin McNeill, Desmond Smiley, Gavin McCurley, John Bess, Dakota Worley and Matthew Gibbs.
Additionally, there are three juniors and two sophomores on the FHS varsity squad.
FHS will be back in action on Tuesday in Georgiana
