Jeff Arnette knows expectations are high entering his fourth year as South Forsyth’s head football coach. After starting the season 3-0, the War Eagles dropped their next six games before defeating rival North Forsyth to end the season with a 4-6 record in Class 6A Region 6-AAAAAA. However, with eight returning starters on offense and defense, including do-it-all rising senior athletes Sam Walker and Isaiah Williams, Arnette thinks his squad might surprise some teams in the fall. "We’ve got a lot of experience back," Arnette said. "…This will be my first class that [has been] with me the whole time, so they know me and I know them and I’ve been able to have them in the weight room three years and hopefully all of those factors will pay off into a good football season."
