COACH HUNTER SAYS:

“We are excited about our returners and newcomers this season, and we think our receiver group will be a strength. Every team faced challenges last season in the spring.

2020 REVIEW

It was a weird year for junior college football in the area. Our area teams played their seasons in the spring of 2021. Fort Scott CC played just three games in the spring before ending their season early, citing injury and attrition to the roster. “The best part of the year was just being able to be on the field again,” says coach Hunter, “It was a rough season, but we will never shy away from a challenge. We are coming into this season teaching our young men to do things tough, fast and the right way,” Hunter adds, “Academically, our team GPA has been above a 3.0 for four consecutive seasons. We believe firmly that this will be the foundation of getting things turned around to make the college and the community proud of the Fort Scott Greyhounds.”

2021 SEASON OUTLOOK

I’m not a coach, but I’m not sure I can imagine a more frustrating start than what Carson Hunter has had at Fort Scott. They didn’t get to play in the fall. Players left. The Greyhounds played in the spring. They had to cancel the season after just three games (0-3) because of injuries and attrition. They were playing some guys at positions they weren’t recruited to play. At the very least, 2021 provides somewhat of a solid starting point for Hunter to start building the program up. “We just want to continue to take steps forward,” Hunter says, “Any step in the right direction is a positive one.” Talking to Hunter in the off-season, he’s excited about some of the players the team has back from last year, including Caleb Franklin and Reece Thomas – who he says will be on-field leaders for the program. “Caleb is a solid player who we’re expecting big things from this season. He will be fully healthy and ready to go. Reece was the highlight of our receiver group in the short spring season. We know what we are getting from him. He’s a young man who is reserved, but performs in a big way.” Hunter also says he expects QB Reagan Davenport to step into a leadership role this fall. “Any time you look at leadership, you have to start at the QB position,” Hunter says, “We are expecting Reagan to compete and lead the team in a good way.” The coaching staff has grown. Fort Scott has some new guys that will make an impact immediately. Their offensive line will be better. Baby steps for now – but coach Hunter has a plan to get this thing going in the right direction in the next few years.
