Notes on the Madison Jaguars

They Move the Chains: Sophomore quarterback Jarvis Williams will be the starter under center for the Jaguars this year. Williams has a decent arm, but has the athletic ability to make plays with his legs. All-purpose athlete Chris Gibbs will create some highlights this season. The wide receiver will be all over the field offensively to give the playmaker an opportunity to get as many touches as possible. Senior John Winston is a special guard who competes on the power lifting team. His size and tremendous strength leads a team that only has three returning offensive starters.

Blitz Patrol: Only three starters return on defense as well, but there is plenty of talent to fill the void. Malik Carr and Kalyia McClodden are two physical playmakers who will patrol the middle of the field at inside and outside linebacker respectively. DB Chris Gibbs will only come off the field briefly in between possessions to get a breather. The two-way athlete will make just as many plays on defense as he will on offense.

Cleats to Fill: RB Jalen Richardson will be missed after putting up big numbers in his Madison career. Five or six players are competing to tote the rock for the Jaguars. No favorite has emerged yet, but wether it's by committee or one feature back, they each will be compared to Richardson.

Unsung Hero: Devarius Patterson is a senior linebacker and is one of the players competing at tailback. Coach Sherrod says Patterson is one of multiple players that has an opportunity to make plays on both sides of the ball.

Ace Watch: When you play as many snaps as Chris Gibbs does, you're bound to have a play or two that could propel you to an Aaron's Ace one honor. The senior will be called upon heavily to make plays and we think he will.

National Ink: It's a inexperienced team with young players, but one athlete who has a chance to make a name for himself will be senior guard John Winston. He's just too strong to not get a look. If he stays healthy and moves guys like he does weights, he could play at the next level.

Must-See Matchup: For a young team with a new head coach, each game is a must-see game. Coach Cedric Sherrod is interested in making, not a competitive team, but a successful program. To establish a winning tradtion, why not start the season playing a state powerhouse. OCS has won back-to-back state titles and they should be a hanful for Madison in the season opener.

Postseason Prospects: Following a 1-9 season, coach Sherrod takes the over the reigns of a young team. Six total returning starters is not exactly a formula for success, but Sherrod likes the future of this program. An accurate assessment of this team may not be in the win column, but how close they keep the scores against their foes.

Coach Talk: "Our key to winning is to learn. We come into a situation where we haven't won. We're rebuilding. If the guys learn to care about one another and learn to be like brothers and think of the team more than themselves, we'll be on our way. We want to play faster and we want to be physical. The faster they learn and trust one another, the better we will be." — Madison Head Coach Cedric Sherrod
