Fountain Inn Football Team Prepares for Inaugural Season

The Fountain Inn football team will play its inaugural season this year. The team will be young, made up mostly of freshmen and sophomores, but this group is eager to give their community something to cheer about on Friday nights. “It was a lot of fun,” second student Sean Smith said. “We can go into the weight room, get a little bigger, get a little stronger and still have to be 100% in every rep and everything else.” “The fundamentals are that we work hard and we just have all the talent and potential in the world,” sophomore Jacob Hilliard said. “We just have to put everything together.” The Fury will be led by the “head coach Brett Nichols, who is from Simpsonville and played high school football at Hillcrest before playing in South Carolina. He played under Steve Spurrier and Lou Holtz and says he learned a lot from his three seasons under Holtz “He could make people believe in things and what we’re trying to accomplish as a band and as a team better than anything. ‘I’ve always been there,'” Nichols said. Nichols and the players are grateful for the community support as they prepare to play their opener on August 19. “I’ve always loved playing football and playing for a new team and building a new pillar of the community is going to be great,” Hilliad said. “This community is hungry,” Nichols said. “They’re proud of it and we haven’t even played the first snap Friday night yet. We will fight. See what we can do. And keep improving week after week. We want to win championships and be there as quickly as possible. But if we can focus on the small thing to improve, that’s how the big goals will be achieved. .
