By Joe Joe Wright

Wow !!!!  What a subject and it sure will stir up some dialogue but hey that’s what a sports column is for ain’t it ? First of all I will go ahead and say this is for fun, and it is my opinion so don’t shoot the messenger!!  You can submit your top 10 all time list as well as a matter of fact I look forward to it.

1981 Crisp County Cougars; final ranking #2; Head Coach Ferrell Henry

2016 Crisp County Cougars; final ranking #4 but 13-1 record; Head Coach Shelton Felton

1995 Crisp County Cougars; final ranking # 3 but 12-2 record; Head Coach Clay Hill

1980 Crisp County Cougars; final ranking #3 11-1 record; Head Coach Ferrell Henry

1988 Crisp County Cougars; record 11-2; Head Coach Sam Barrs

1989 Crisp county Cougars; record 11-2;  Head Coach Sam Barrs

1996 Crisp County Cougars; record 9-3; Head Coach Clay Hill

1997 Crisp County Cougars; record 9-3; Head Coach Clay Hill

1990 Crisp County Cougars; record 8-3; Head Coach Sam Barrs

2001 Crisp County Cougars; record 9-4; Head Coach Clay Hill

       Honorable mentions: 1979 CCC 6-4 record against region 1-AAAA Valdosta, Moultrie, Tift, Lowndes F. Henry HC…1974 Cougars 5-5 against 1-AAAA loss to Valdosta  3-0 and beat Moultrie and Lowndes. Tom Avret HC 1-4 1st  half season F. Henry HC 4-1 in 2nd half season. 1984 Cougars 7-6 record made it to Quarter Finals; HC Buddy Cox.

So there you have it the all time best Cougar football teams. No Rebels and no Rams teams calculated in this scenario. I am certain that members of last years and the 95 squad will disagree but anything short of a championship you must rely on rankings!!!!
