COVID hits football team

Jeff Davis High Head Football Coach Lance Helton found himself in a quandary Tuesday afternoon as he and defensive coordinator Jay Cravey sat down together to figure out a new depth chart after 20 players suddenly found themselves being quarantined because of exposure to the COVID-19 infection.
The loss of the players prompted Coach Helton to remark that this Friday night in Macon, when the Jackets open their season against Rutland High School, the team will look much different than it did last Friday night when the Jackets dominated visiting Wilcox County in a pre-season scrimmage.
The starting lineup for Friday’s game looks like this:
Offense
Quarterback Tyson Alls
Fullback Kiyon Dotson
Halfback C.J. Parker
Z back Peyton Laney
Tight end Matthew Glass
Wide receiver Michael Dotson
Left tackle William Cravey
Left guard Nate Lewis
Center Lewis Baker
Right guard Dalton Sellers
Right tackle Jacob Strom
Defense
Nose guard Amarion Mitchell
Tackle Conner Mason
Ends Dalton Sellers and Miyon Conaway
Rover Landon Roberson
Weak side inside linebacker Peyton Laney
Middle linebacker Kiyon Dotson
Strong side linebacker Carter Mullis
Cornerbacks C.J. Parker and Michael Dotson
Free safety Kade Harpe
