Brunswick Must Rebuild to Contend in '96


Price, Kevin, The Florida Times Union


The task facing the Brunswick football team this season is a

daunting one.

Not only will the Pirates (7-3, 4-2 Region 3-AAAA B) be playing

one of the toughest schedules in school history, they'll do so

with only three starters returning.

The most notable loss is that of tailback Armis Stokes, who was

the centerpiece of the Pirates' high-powered offense the past

two seasons. Stokes, a two-time Times-Union Super 11 selection

and the Region 3-AAAA Back of the Year last fall, rushed for

1,412 yards and 19 touchdowns in 1995, averaging 7.3 yards per

carry.

He ended his career with 3,103 yards to become the Pirates'

all-time leading rusher while also rewriting the school's record

books in several other offensive categories.

With Stokes gone, Brunswick coach John Willis, now in his 16th

season, will turn to a converted lineman with just

junior-varsity experience to handle the running-back duties.

Senior Jacoma Montford (6 feet 1, 210 pounds) is an experiment

at fullback after playing defensive end last season. He

displayed his straight-ahead speed as a sprinter on the track

team in the spring, and Willis hopes the change will pay off

just as it did for the University of Georgia with tailback

Robert Edwards.

Filling Stokes' shoes at tailback will be junior Bill Arnette

(5-11, 175), who saw limited time behind Stokes last season. He

rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns on just 24 carries.

"Hopefully, Jacoma and Bill can give us what Armis gave us as

one person," Willis said. "I feel good about them, but they are

unproven and they have to show how good they'll be."

Joining those two in the backfield will be senior quarterback

Carlos Herrington (6-4, 205), a part-time starter last season,

and junior slotback Jemar Jones (6-0, 190). …
