Congratulations to the Nichols Lawson Middle School football team and coaching staff for their accomplishments this season. The Aggies finished the season undefeated and County Champions for the first time in NLMS History. Head football coach, Chad Wilkinson, stated that the football program has turned in the right direction as far as the athletes understanding what it means to be a student-athlete, promoting a solid work ethic, and accountability. Coach Wilkinson felt that those three things helped shape the program to be successful this season. "I'm so proud of the players and coaches for buying in to what I wanted to teach these athletes this year. Practices were demanding, fast paced, and lots of teaching. All players responded with enthusiasm and a good work ethic everyday. I saw this team really come together around mid-July during summer workouts and I knew that we were headed in the right direction. We had some bumps along the way, but they were teachable moments in which all athletic programs go through. These guys out scored their opponents 212-60 this season, finished undefeated and received some hardware for their hard work. My coaches and I are really proud of these young men and it's very rewarding when you see all the hard work payoff, Aggie Pride!!!"
