Louisa Football Aims To Be At The Top Of Jefferson District
For the first time in four seasons, the Louisa County Lions missed the playoffs in 2012. While it still stings, the guys say they are on the upswing this year.
Running back, Deion Johnson said,"I really don't like going back and thinking about it in my memories. I try to put it behind me. But hopefully this year we can do way better." Linebacker, Kyle Anderson, added, "last year is definitely a down year. Everyone faces it, but we're ready to bounce back."
The Lions ended 2012 with one of the biggest upsets in the Jefferson District. Louisa went into Western Albemarle and handed the Warriors their only regular season loss.
Louisa is losing star quarterback Zach Jackson but Junior Trey Cherry says he's ready for the job.
Cherry said, "I'm pretty confident. We have a really good staff, a really good team and we're really ready to play this season." Head coach Jon Meeks added, "I feel great about that young man and I'm ecstatic to have him for two seasons. He does have big shoes to fill. Zach Jackson is a household name. I really got big plans for Trey Cherry, I think he's going to be a house held name real soon."
The Lions main goal is to be one of the top teams in the Jefferson District so they can get back to the playoffs in 2013.
"Most people are sleeping on us, but we're going to be back on top. We're coming back this year, we're ready. We're getting things off to a great start, we're having great practices and we're ready for the season to kick off," said Johnson.
