So sorry they lost. Poor kids...I really do hate it for them.

When Ken Eldridge was coach they always went to the playoffs...lol just saying..

Everybody was so ready to get Pruitt in and let him make all these changes. Spend lots of money...What a shame.

I listened to the game last night and all I heard was excuses.

"they are not playing well because they need a weight room" over and over...
What ever....

When are people gonna get it... It is high school football and it does not matter how much you pay a coach or how much you spend, they are still kids and if you don't have the talent, you just don't have it.

Lots of pressure on the kids to win...

If you listen to the game every week, thats all you will ever hear, are excuses. that's about the most cry bunch of men I have ever heard. First you have a Dr. that can't talk, then you have a sideline man that is stuiped.

So does that mean CC football season is over? Sorry I don't follow CC that much. My kids attend cc schools so our house is divided.
I follow Ware county much more and they are region champs even though the lost to CC but they are in a differnet region than CC. Ware county always seems to go the atleast the 2 or 3rd round of state playoffs. A couple years ago the made it all the was up to the GA dome. Sorry didn't mean to talk so such about Ware county. I am sorry to hear the Trojans didn't do as expected. Maybe next year.

Valdosta Ends Coffee’s Season 44-8
by Robert Preston Jr.

If things went according to plan in Region 1-6A on Nov. 9, the top four teams in the region would be Camden County, Lowndes County, Valdosta and Colquitt County. If, however, Colquitt could beat Camden and Coffee could upset Valdosta, there would be an enormous mess in the bottom half of the region standings.

Colquitt did its part. Coffee did not.

The Packers stunned Camden 13-12 in Moultrie, handing the Wildcats their first regular-season region loss under head coach Jeff Herron. It was the second time in a row that Colquitt had beaten Camden. Last year, when the two teams were in different regions, the Packers defeated the Wildcats in the playoffs in Camden.

While Colquitt and Camden were battling down in Moultrie, the Valdosta Wildcats were having their way with the Trojans. Coffee looked tired and haggard all night, and fell 44-8 to the ‘Cats. Orlando Ingram scored the Trojans’ lone touchdown. Keegan McGovern and Raquan Ross connected in the end zone for the two-point conversion.

Colquitt’s win didn’t affect the region standings at all. Camden is still the first seed, followed by Lowndes, Valdosta (which defeated Colquitt earlier in the year) and Colquitt. Coffee, Tift and Brunswick did not make the playoffs. The Trojans finish the year with a 5-5 record.

Sorry to hear that my kids are going to be disappointed. I hope nobody takes offense to me talking about ware county. I know a few of the kids parents that is on that team. I haven't been in coffee county long enough to learn anything about CC players.

Pruitt cant do it.Now Dr. Leis lets ask him to resign also so we can hire another coach and pay him even more let him bring in coaches under him and create jobs for their wifes as well.I'm glad we now have a charter school system so we can get another school started and get back to what school was intended for (education).Maybe a new superintendent would help as well one that can make wise decisions and not be politically pushed around.Looking toward for everyone to join in a movement to get Coffee County a new school system headed up bye level headed board members and not clowns. Good day!

The charter system will make it easier to funnel money to the weight room.

The charter school ammendment will make it easier to start a charter school for the kids who don't play football.

Pruitt will get to stay because he (like Obama) will blame his first year on the previous administration. However, it will be interesting to see who he blames during his next reign.(That goes for Pruitt and Obama!)

where are all the Pruitt supporters who downed Eldrige?? 5-5. what??? 5 wins, 5 loses.
I thought he was this GREAT coach who was gonna take coffee all the way. Changed logo, spent millions, got rid of some great people.
YOU ALL ARE A BUNCH OF DUMMIES!!! That goes for the board, who approved it and the Super that pushed it and all the "Money Grubbin Touchdown Club Members".
I bet Ken Eldridge is on cloud nine and singing "How do you like me now". Bi##ches!!
Maybe, COOFFEE COUNTY will listen when you fire school employees to "save money" only to let someone come in and spend it like it their own money.
Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Whats so funny is that every is all the Pruitt lovers are going to say give the man time. Kids have got to have time to learn his system and his way. But guess what. Fitzgeral had never seen or heard of his way and he took them to the State play of game his first year in Fitzgeald. Coffee had see the way he played year after year. No excuses Coffee!!!!

If all of you on here are so much better, why don't you go apply for the head coaching position and see if you can do any better?

Nobody is saying they can coach any better,,,however, all the Pruitt fans said he was a better coach than Eldridge and all we heard was how he was the "man".
Sorry they lost but money does not buy talent. And Coffee county spent the money on this man. I say we need a refund.
so what

Good Grief!
Pruitt ran off the THUGS! I could care less how good of a player they are, if they can't take discipline, they can get the heck off the team. As a fan of Coffee High School, with no family members on or near this team, I look forward to seeing what Coach Pruitt and his staff can do here. You have to make tough decisions in order to get things done. Part of that was sending two white boys to the sidelines whose daddy's thought they were too good to sit out. They quit. Others quit because they couldn't abide by disciplinary measures. Too bad. I see good things coming from this staff. I was at a ball game and saw two players in the stands. Why? Pruitt told them to quit playing on the bus and they didn't. He sat them out. I respect that. I don't care who you are or where you come from. Good things are coming for Coffee County football and for the High School with the new Principal. A man of integrity and discipline as well. With this team of leadership, everybody will win.

why dont you people look at what coach pruitt has done..he brought prayer back to jardine stadium, he prayed with and for our kids and not to mention he only had six months to try and teach a team a entire different approach to football...oh and when eldridge was coach there was only 5 teams in the region so you could go to playoffs only winning 1 game....coffee will NEVER have a winning program because the people of this county will never give a coach a chance after 1 loss alot of folks were ready to throw in the towel...coffee has not had the facilities that most of the other teams in our region has had but next year our boys should be better prepared with our new weight room..im proud of our boys and thanksful for our new coaching staff...

I am very positive for Coach Pruitt and what he is doing. We need to give his team time to succeed.

However, do not say that he brought prayer back...Coach Bonwell Royal always prayed with his team.

Man you need to remain silent. Every time you post, it makes me think how you even got through school. Are you 6 or a grown person? Heaven help our school system if you made it through.
