Bedford County - New Jefferson Forest football coach Bob Christmas returned to his old stomping grounds Thursday.
Christmas, who's coming back to guide the Cavaliers after leading the program to back-to-back state titles in the early 90's, came up from Georgia to meet and talk to his players he'll be working with this coming season. He also talked with parents and old friends at the school. Christmas' staff this year will include former Tech All-American center Jake Grove, along with coaches from his old staff Ed Landis and Richard Trent. Former JF quarterback Doug Jones also joins the staff. Christmas told his players EVERYBODY is probably going to have to work harder than they ever have before, starting Monday with off-season weight training.
