Seahawks coach Aaron York is stressing to his players that it’s one step at a time as the team builds for the future.

“Our kids continued to fight during the game until the end. We are going to continue to work hard at practice and continue to get better,” he said, as he looked back on the team’s opening game loss 66-7 at home Friday night against the South Walton Seahawks.

“We are stressing to the kids, they are laying the foundation for the future success of the program. We have this week to get healthy and continue our march for success,” York said. The Seahawks have a bye this Friday night.

South Walton Seahawks coach Phil Tisa had just one win last year in his first season, a victory over Franklin County in the final game of the year.

On Friday night, with 14 returning players, Tisa’s squad picked up where they left off, cruising to a second straight win over the Seahawks.

“I told them ‘Enjoy it tonight, but tomorrow you start preparing for somebody else,’” said Tisa. “’Don’t get complacent and try to get better.’”

South Walton took the opening kickoff into Franklin County territory, and with 9:13 left in the first quarter, senior running back Anthony Gundrum trotted in from nine yards out, and senior kicker Chandler Parrett nailed the extra point, to draw first blood.
