Countdown to Kickoff: Fulton Falcons

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Rob Black spent his first 19 seasons at Fulton as offensive coordinator.

Now in his 20th season at the school, Black enters his first year as the Falcon's head coach, replacing Buck Coatney.

The Falcons will have a lot of new faces on an offense this season, as the squad returns just one starter.

Fulton has five starters returning on defense.

Black believes his team will have a lot of speed and athletic ability, but he will be looking for more discipline this year.

In 2010, Fulton started the year 2-4, but then won five consecutive games and advanced to the second round of the state playoffs.

Fulton opens up the 2010 season August 20 on the road against Morristown West.
