The Jefferson football program has not tasted victory since October 19, 2012. This year's J-Hawks believe that drought will end this season thanks to an up-tempo attack that's primed to leave defenses exhausted as they try to keep up.
"We want to play fast. We want to run as many plays as possible," says second-year head coach Ken DuBose. "Our goal is to run 100 plays so in order to do that, we had to put an emphasis on getting in better shape and playing fast."
There's also a new addition to the Jefferson coaching staff in Year Two under DuBose - former Rockford Christian Life head coach Tony Ambrogio, who guided the Eagles to three straight playoff appearances before leaving the school, is now on the J-Hawks bench.
Their season starts on Friday at Rockford's Wyeth Stadium on the Auburn campus against Belvidere North.
