Washington, GA (WJBF) — WJBF “Your Hometown” paid a visit to Washington, Georgia on Wednesday. As is the case in many small towns around the CSRA, the football team is kind of a big deal.
The Tigers are coming off their first 10-win since 2006. Under 3rd year head coach Robbie Robinson, the future looks bright. The Tigers return 17 starters, but they will have to replace their quarterback, Buck Robinson, the coach's son.
The Tigers also beat Lincoln County last year for the first time since 2003. Coach Robinson hopes that helps give his team confidence as they play their rivals in the future.
Robinson got his coaching start in the Atlanta area, but he says he prefers coaching in smaller communities. He says he watched The Andy Griffith Show too much growing up and fell in love with small towns.
