Blountstown Football determined to maintain momentum from last season

BLOUNTSTOWN, Fla. - In the 2017-18 athletic calendar, the Blountstown Tigers sent eight different teams to the state playoffs - one of those teams being football.

A lot has changed within the program since their state championship run last season, falling short in the title game. Former Head Coach Greg Jordan is now over at Port St. Joe and the Tigers graduated a handful of impactful seniors.

However, Blountstown has that 'next man up' mentality in full force. Beau Johnson is now heading the football program and the Tigers will be looking for more players to step up.

They're wasting no time getting down to business. The team has been in the weight room for over a week now, also working on some things on the field.

Johnson says, while there will be many changes to come within the program, they hope to keep the tradition of dominating 1A football alive. 

"Coach Jordan did a fantastic job here. We hope to continue the winning tradition, but nobody can be the exact same so we're gonna do some things that I've cut my teeth on in the business for over twenty years. A lot of it will look the same. A lot of it will look different. It's going to be a lot of fun. The kids have bought in 100%. It's been a great summer so far," said Johnson.
