CLINTON (WVLT) -- The quarterback is gone, but the attitude remains.

Anderson County quarterback Tanner Williams set multiple state passing records during his two years under center for the Mavericks. Now, he takes his talents to Tennessee Tech, and the Mavs must find a way to replace him.

Consecutive state quarterfinal appearances have David Gillum's team convinced it can duplicate its success, despite losing the quarterback who helped take it so far.

Micah Hodge steps into Williams' large shoes, and teammates and coaches alike say they believe in his ability to command the offense.

Anderson County returns five starters on both offense and defense. Receiver Josh Mayes will be stepping into the lead receiver role to fill the shoes of Zane Roberts, who had over 1,000 receiving yards.

Senior linebacker Trey McCoy will anchor the Maverick's defense. As a junior McCoy had 129 total tackles, 12 of those for a loss and 5 sacks.
