After a year in which Statesboro settled for a fourth-place region finish and took an uncharacteristic bow in the first round of the Georgia High School Association state playoffs, this season is all about improving and climbing back towards the top. New faces — both on the Blue Devils’ roster and the schedule — have any definite predictions still up in the air, but with just a week until the regular season kicks off, Statesboro is starting to see things come together. The Devils hosted Groves in a scrimmage last week, pulling out a 21-7 victory on a rainy night at Womack Field.
