Entering the third year of Coach Sid Maxwell’s tenure, Dawson County High School football will begin the season with an inexperienced group at the varsity level when they open play on the road against Forsyth Central on Aug. 25. “Even though they don’t have a lot of experience varsity-wise, they understand where they need to go,” Maxwell said about this year’s team. “They just need more reps playing against competition to get a true measurement of where we are.” The Tigers finished last season at 7-3 overall and 5-1 in Region 7-AAA as region runners up. The team lost in the first round of state playoffs to the Lovett Lions.
