So far, so good for Statesboro

Many coaches will say that the biggest improvement for a football team occurs between the first and second game of the season. Statesboro High coach Steve Pennington is always looking for big leaps forward from his team, but there is no doubting that the Blue Devils looked more fluid and in sync in a 42-13 drubbing of Richmond Academy last week. Statesboro excelled in all facets of the game, moving the ball through the air and on the ground, constantly stuffing the Musketeers’ offense, and patching up some special teams holes that had been one of the few sour notes in its season opening win.
