The biggest news of the sports year for Jones County High School was the departure of Dwight Jones in February after six years as head football coach and the hiring of Justin Rogers as his replacement in April.

Jones was 31-30 leading the Greyhounds and returned the team to the state playoffs for the first time since 2004 when the 2012 team went 7-4. It lost in the first round.

Rogers came from Griffin, the AAAA state champion in 2013 with a perfect 15-0 record. He was offensive coordinator there the last three years, and his last two offenses set school records in points scored.

He began installing his spread offense during spring practice but says the Greyhounds have much more work to do over the summer to be ready to open the 2014 season at Morgan County on Aug. 29.

On the field last fall, the varsity Greyhounds got off to a 4-2 start and appeared poised to return to the state football playoffs for the second year in a row, but they faded down the stretch, losing three of their final four games to finish at 5-5.

In middle school football, Gray Station’s Hounds went 9-0 to win the CGMSAL title, and Clifton Ridge also had a good season, making it to the semifinals.
