Joel Ingram has always been an offensive lineman at heart … the kind of guy that isn’t afraid of getting into the drills and explaining who goes where and what move works well in a certain situation. And he absolutely LOVES it when someone doles out a proper pancake.
The head coach for the Golden Hawks of Washington County is in his 14th season in charge there after spending six seasons as an assistant under Rick Tomberlin. And, since 1990, Washington County has only missed the playoffs once. That’s a pretty steady pedigree for a town in Sandersville that is one of the leading producers in kaolin on the planet.
We all know kaolin as, basically, anything clay.
Everything from rocket nose cones to pottery. That’s kaolin.
And, if memory serves, it’s Germany, England, Argentina, and Sandersville as the world’s leading producers of it. They have festivals named after the product every year and the long-time mall in the center of town is named, literally, “Kaolin Plaza.”
The Golden Hawks are always one of those teams you look at that makes runs in the postseason and this year’s expectation is no different. But there may some math involved to determine the end result in 2019.
