Background

The Titans had an outstanding season last year that ended in a conference runner-up bid leaving them one game short of going to HUTCH. The Titans lost some crucial pieces to last year’s team that are now at four year universities including All Conference players Mike Harden and Darryl Tucker Jr. The Titans return two players Anthony Johnson and Tyrone Young in which they saw a lot of action from last year. Keep an eye out for newcomers: Nosike Obanya, Adrian Tolbert, Jordan Martin, Andre Brooks, Malik Davis, Michael Laster, and LaDarius Stewart to make an immediate impact. Entering his fifth year as the head coach, Reco Dawson has lead the Titans to two conference runner- ups, three 20 win seasons and a trip to HUTCH. The Titans will be looking to get over the hump and bring a championship home to Central Georgia. Make sure you catch your Titans at all three JucoReport Jamborees this Fall.
