Countdown to Kickoff: Campbell Co.

LAFOLLETTE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- It's year number two for Justin Price at Campbell County.

Price and his Cougars ended last year with a 3-7 record, but things should be better this fall for the Campbell County faithful.

The Cougars now have experience. Nine starters return on offense, with six on defense.

Experience will be there. Price is working hard to make sure the confidence is as well.

"You take a program over like Campbell County and historically, you know, they've had some success, but for the most part, it's been some tough times," Price said.

"You come in and try to change the culture and obviously it doesn't happen overnight. Sometimes you want that instant gratification. I think in the second year you see that players start to understand the expectations a little bit more of what we want from them and the level of committment is getting better."

Campbell County has posted just one winning record since 1975, that was in 2004.

The Cougars open up the year at home August 17 against Seymour.
