DARLINGTON (WBTW) – The Darlington football program has been stuck in a rut in recent years, but they are hopeful that new coach Jamie Johnson can turn things around. Johnson comes from Hannah-Pamplico where he helped the Raiders reach the Class 1A playoffs on multiple occasions.
Johnson will have his hands full, the Falcons haven’t won a game since the 2019 season and this senior class is just 1-37 overall.
They do return 13 of their 22 starters and will feature a lot of team speed. They’ll need to improve their depth in certain positions and simply just learn how to win again to gain confidence.
Head Coach: Jamie Johnson (1st season)
2022 record: 0-9, 0-5 in Region 6-3A
Offensive Starters Returning: 6
Defensive Starters Returning: 7
2023 first game: Friday, August 18 vs. Central Pageland – 7:30pm
