CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. - Former Georgia Bulldog Cap Burnett is back coaching at his alma mater of North Clayton, trying to bring the Eagles back to prominence from when back in the day when he and his brother, Morgan Burnett, as well as D. J. Shockley among many others, wandered the halls there.
The HIGH 5 crew mic'd up Burnett, who is coaching his first year, as his team took on Luella.
"Like I told y'all, nobody give us a chance but anybody ain’t in here. Y'all under how to play North Clayton Football... Maximum effort," Burnett told his team in the locker room before the game. "Lock in tonight."
"Go out there and make it happen. Don't give now. Run your line, do what you're supposed to do. Let's go. Let's out there," Burnett told his team before taking the field. "This is the first defensive play of the year. Make it happen let's go."
All of Coach Burnett's efforts to motivate his team unfortunately didn't get them the win. They fall to Luella 21-8. They go on to face the Salem Seminoles next week in Conyers.
