It's the kickoff

It’s Friday night under the lights as the Bradwell Tigers hit the road to open the regular football season against Glynn Academy at 7:30 p.m.
The Tigers spent the past week preparing and perfecting their performance — one that gave them a win in a scrimmage against McIntosh County Academy this past week.
Josh Magaw will take the snaps while Ronald Joseph, Manual Crum, Leroy Rock, Jonathan Lopez and Christain Thomas will rotate as wide receivers.
The secret to this year’s success, according to head coach Jim Walsh, is keeping things simple.
“Right now, we’re not really working so much on Glynn, we are working primarily on us,” he said. “We are going to keep things simple on the front end of the schedule. We face three solid teams and sometimes it is better to stick with a smaller, simple playbook and concentrate on execution rather than having a thick playbook. Once you can begin to execute, then you add more plays.”
Walsh also said he has a strong set of backs ready to perform Friday night, including Mike McGirt, Demario Day, Greg Butler and Terrance Jeminson.
Walsh noted he still has interior guys who were bumped and bruised in the scrimmage and intends to make sure key players get time to heal before regional games.
“You have to play smart,” he said. “We have to play the guys that are healthy. You don’t risk the key players early in the season and not have them healthy as we get to regional games. If they are questionable they will sit Friday night and let others get the reps while they heal,” he said.
The Glynn Academy Red Terrors were 7-3 in regular season last year and 0-1 in post. They opened up their 2006 season with a 31-0 victory over the Tigers.
The Tiger home opener is against Griffin at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 7, at Olvey field. The home opener will be broadcast live on WOAH 106.3 FM.
