While there weren’t many bright spots in the non-region performances of the 2016 Demons, the latter half of the season proved that the Demons are closer than ever to region relevance and a playoff birth.
Last season the Demons seized region victories over Harris County and Veterans and pulled within striking distance of wins against region champion and runner up in TCC and Bainbridge, respectively. However, that 2-8 (2-2) campaign under first year coach Mike Chastain hopes to serve as a springboard for 2017 success, especially with an unexpected two-for-one transfer from Houston County.
Upon older brother Jake Fromm’s graduation and a change in coaching regime for the Bears, 6’0” quarterback Dylan Fromm and 6’4” starting receiver Tyler Fromm will provide an offensive spark for Warner Robins. Although Dylan is untested, like his brother, he will have the luxury of standing behind a future Division I offensive tackle that will anchor the otherwise developing offensive line.
Christian Armstrong, the 6’5” 335-pound offensive tackle and Florida State commit, will provide the protection for not only the Fromm brothers, but also returning impact players in Burnett, Cobbs and Owens.
“This year we want to make defenses play the whole field,” Chastain told Donnell Suggs of the Houston Home Journal.
However, it is defensive depth that Chastain believes will be the Demons’ true strength.
“We always try to be balanced with what we are trying to do here at Warner Robins,” Chastain said. “That includes returning seniors to key positions on both offense and in particular on defense.”
