Preseason Picks - Football Players to Watch

There are a plethora of football stars drawing college recruiters to the Coastal Empire and the Savannah Morning News chose the Top 20 to watch as the 2021 season commences. Two SCDS seniors Barry Kleinpeter and Kenny Odom were selected to the top 20. Quarterback Kleinpeter returns for his fourth season as a starter at SCD. He has thrown for 5,123 yards and 54 touchdowns and is ready to bolster those stellar numbers with his favorite receiver, Kenny Odom, back for his senior season. Odom, who is also a track and field star for the Hornets, had 54 receptions for 814 yards and 10 touchdowns last year. He has 103 career catches for 1,785 yards with 22 touchdown receptions. Go Hornets!!

The Team to Watch

Savannah Country Day was coming off its best season in 40 years, but the Hornets had a hard time following that successful 2019 campaign last season after the loss of three standout defensive linemen to graduation - leaving the Hornets inexperienced upfront. But SCD is ready to bounce back from a 3-6 record with a new coach leading the way and some familiar faces in key positions. Mohring has some talented players coming back - led by quarterback Barry Kleinpeter, receiver/defensive back Kenny Odom and WR/DB Alex Wynn, all seniors who are determined to close out their prep careers on a high note. "Everything has been going great. We've got a senior-led group," Mohring, 36, said. "And with guys like Barry (Kleinpeter) and Kenny (Odom) coming back, we've got a chance to have a special season.
