PREVIEW: Bobcats aim to build on last year's playoff appearance


HINTON (WVVA) - The Summers County Bobcats got a small taste of success last year when they made it to the playoffs. But this year, with a lot of experience returning -- and a new head honcho -- the Bobcats have their eyes on a state title.

Nate Tanner was hired as head coach back in May...and so far, he's made a great impression.

"He's a hard worker, he wants us to be successful," said senior Erik Lindsey. "He's making us work our butts off in the weight room, on the field. He's just a head coach, he's doing great."

The Bobcats return several offensive weapons, including quarterback TJ Smith.

The team feels very confident as they begin preparing for their first opponent, rival PikeView -- but they also say they're focusing on the real task at hand.

First round of the playoffs, that was good but we need to get better, said senior Isaiah Brown. "We're looking for that state championship, that's all our eyes are on."
