CTK: William Blount Governors

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- It's year two at William Blount for Governors head coach Justin Ridge.

Year two should produce better results.

Experience is one reason. William Blount has seven starters returning on both offense and defense, including quarterback Reed Daniels.

Ridge is also hoping for a mentally tougher team.

"We ended up losing four games last year by a touchdown or less, so we're working on being competitive," Ridge said.

"We need to learn how to win games. Knowing you're gonna win when the game is on the line is a big game changer."

William Blount opens up the season at home August 22 against Loudon.
