PRENTISS COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Baldwyn has 38 players on its roster this year, but there's a lot of new faces.
Head coach Michael Gray lost 17 seniors from 2017, plus a few other players to injury.
Despite all the new faces, Gray says he likes what he's seeing so far.
"They're fun to be around, it's just a bit low in number and a little low in experience, but over game time, they're gonna get in some situations, and they're gonna continue to get better," Gray said.
Meanwhile, Booneville returns 51 players to its roster.
Last season, eighteen Blue Devils missed at least one game due to injury. Six of those players underwent major surgeries.
Despite those injuries, Booneville made last year's playoffs.
"It lets you sit down and kind of sit back and say, 'hey, I'm one play away from not playing', or if you're a younger kid that wasn't expected to play, 'hey, I'm one play away from starting'," Mattox said.
