Worth County has entrusted former Turner County head coach Ben Simmons to lead the Rams’ program to the next level, on and off of the field.
“It’s been a joyous transition for me,” Simmons said. “There’s been ups, downs, and kinks involved, but I was looking forward to it once I got the acceptance to be their head football coach, and I’ve been enjoying it ever since.”
Simmons walks into a Worth County program that is coming off of a season of growing momentum. Their eight point loss to Crisp County was the only thing that stood between the ’16 Rams and another region championship, and the ’17 Rams are looking to make that final push and live up to the Worth County tradition.
“There is a lasting football tradition here,” said Simmons. “When we walk into the stadium every day, I can see the sign of Milt Miller, state championship winning coach here, I see the tradition, the region championships, and the honor that that brings to come to this community.”
“Worth County fans have a lot to look forward to this year,” Simmons said. “We are going to put a quality product out on the field. We are playing for championships, and we will fight tooth and nail. There is still a lot of work left to do, by no means will it be easy, but we are going to play hard every Friday night and represent Sylvester, Georgia quite well.”
