Third-year Ridgeland-Hardeeville coach Jahmaal Nelson is pumped up.
“It’s football season,” Nelson said. “I love this time of year.”
Two years ago, in Nelson’s first season, the Jaguars went 8-4 with a trip to the second round of the SCHSL Class AA playoffs. Last year the Jaguars were 2-8 and missed the playoffs.
This season there’s a new challenge as the Jaguars move up to Class AAA. But Nelson is ready for a better year.
“People consider us the last-place team,” Nelson said. “I’m excited about that. I love a challenge.”
