  • Jaguars striving to regroup

    On September 13 the East Gadsden Jaguars suffered a tough 61-0 loss to the Godby Cougars. Last week the Jaguars were off, the team used the extra time to rest their bodies and do some team-building exercises. East Gadsden’s head coach, Tracy Laing, described the mood of the team after the Godby game as “kind of disturbing’  the game was a big letdown. (We have) got to take the loss and move on. I’m ready to get the Godby game out of sight.”
