New Coach New Attitude

Coach Brian Barnhill Head Football Coach for the Columbus Blue Devils has brought a new sense of attitude around the Blue Devils Football program. His toughness and no nonsense approach has been a welcomed change to the program. He has focused on the intangibles and the basics. I was able to make some of there practice before my eventual move to Texas and I did notice a change on our kids they seem a lot closer than last year and there motivation is sky high. The Blue Devils have not made the playoffs since 1994 and the kids are hungry. The Blue Devils are young but have talent they include JR QB Greg Bingham, SO LB Jonathan Repollet, JR LB Steven Drisker, JR RB Curtis Jefferson, SR DL Danny Padron, SR OL Phillip Wise, SR OL Cody Boyd and several ready to step in, they now have a coach that can mold them and make them a better team. We all should be excited about the upcoming season. I will continue to make weekly post as the season gets under way let's support our kids and our new Head Coach.
