Ajay Ulmer: We've only just begin

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

While the Florida high school football championships are being played in Orlando, Chiefland High coach Ajay Ulmer has had the chance to reflect on his first year in charge of the Indian gridiron tepee.

Although he probably isn't much of a fan of the old singing group The Carpenters, one of their hit songs "We've Only Just Begun" would describe what 2007 was all about.

"I'd give this team a B,"answered Ulmer about a letter grade. "The kids were willing to do a lot to get us back to playing competitive again. The turnabout has been made. Some of the seniors had three different coaches in three years. They went through a lot, but they hung in there. They handled it well."

Ulmer was shooting for over .500. A lucky bounce here and a decent shake from the refs there, and Chiefland could have very easily been 6-4.

Although the 4-6 record fell a bit short, the important thing is that the groundwork has been laid for future Indian teams to build success on.
