In 2015, Lee County did not make it to the playoffs for the first time in three years. Head coach Dean Fabrizio has been with the school since 2009 and has been improving the Trojans year after year.
During Fabrizio's seven seasons with Lee County they have compiled a 44-31 record while in the seven seasons prior to Fabrizio's control the Trojans went 20-54. Last season the Trojans won their first six games but dropped their final four to finish 6-4 and 1-4 in the difficult Region 1-AAAAAA.
After finishing 10-2 in 2013 with the most wins in a single-season in Lee County history tied with the program's 2005 mark, Fabrizio won Region Coach of the Year. In 2014 Fabrizio won Albany Herald Coach of the Year.
In 2016 the Trojans will be led by starting quarterback junior Jase Orndorff who replaces Garet Morrell after the senior threw for 1,499 yards and 19 touchdowns. As a sophomore, Orndorff went 30-of-55 for 262 yards and one touchdown.
Big play threats Tray Eafford and Ahrion Covington leave voids at wide receiver. Eafford totaled 706 receiving and 12 touchdowns while Covington caught 24 balls for 332 yards and one score. Rising senior Kono Smith totaled 10 catches for 79 yards and will be asked to try and replicate the success had between Eafford and Covington. Wide receivers DreQuan Garmon and Josh Asbury will be making their debuts with the varsity as juniors.
The defense will be led by TJ Harris who completed the 2015 season with four interceptions and 61 tackles. After losing Cole Maxwell at linebacker, the Trojans will need to find a way to replace his 85.5 tackles. Senior defensive end Tory Carter returns after making 49 stops and collecting eight quarterback hurries. With the graduation of Collins Tensley, the team's leading sack-man with 8.5 last year, Carter will be asked to finish plays in the backfield.
