Madison Prep Academy will enter the 2020 season on a positive note following a productive scrimmage vs Scotlandville on Friday. The Chargers' 2019 season was highlighted by a nine-game win streak in which they finished with an 11-2 record, an impressive District 7-3A title, and a Class 3A quarterfinals appearance. Madison Prep owned one of the most talented rosters in the class 3A last year led by UGA safety Major Burns and Kentucky defensive back Joel Williams.
This year's roster is still stacked with talent and head coach Landry Williams is excited to compete against a solid schedule that includes West Feliciana, University High, Parkview Baptist, and Southern Lab.
"We've been known for always playing top-notch programs. If you want to be the best, you have to play some great teams, but we're are up for the challenge" said Williams. "It's so fun to work with these guys. Once you start getting close to game time, you get a different energy."
The Memphis University commit Tyrell Raby will play both ways for the Chargers at cornerback and receiver. Junior Zeon Chriss will have the opportunity to improve on a sophomore campaign where he accounted for 47 touchdowns. The 6-2, 197-pound quarterback has picked up an offer from Memphis.
Some other names to keep a lookout for are OL Troy Porter, LB Andre Haynes, DE Quency Wiggins, RB Benjamin Stewart, and DB Nylen Jones.
Pictured below is LB Andre Haynes & DE Quency Wiggins. This is the first year of football for junior Quency Wiggins because basketball was his primary focus his freshman & sophmore year. At 6-foot-5, 241 pounds, it's only a matter of time until he's a hot commodity on the recruiting trail especially with his athletic traits.
