The return of the HIGH 5 Sports Big Show, the first show of the 2018 season, is just a few weeks away.

A new year often means new faces on the sidelines and that’s the case in Barrow County where Tony Lotti hopes to resurrect the program at Apalachee High School.

Lotti joins the Wildcat family after spending the past six years at West Hall High School.

The 51-year-old coach will have his work cut out for him. The Wildcats have only won four games in the past five years. And they have not been to the playoffs since 2009.

the ‘Chee scrimmages Dunwoody Friday night and opens the season on Aug. 17 against Monroe Area.

Coach knows there will be some growing pains, but wants the kids to know he's ready to turn things around.
