TUCKER – Cross Keys High will be a wildcard in Region 5-AAAAA as the Indians are moving up to a full-time schedule in 2018.

For the past few seasons, Cross Keys has been on a hybrid football schedule. With the move up to full-time, Cross Keys will play a full schedule for the first time since 2013.

“This year at Cross Keys we’re looking forward to great improvement,” Cross Keys head coach Mark Adams said. “We’re bringing back over 20 football players which is a little different from what we’re used to. Guys have experience playing on both sides of the ball and they’ve played varsity football games before.”

It won’t be a stellar season for the Indians but the move to the full-time schedule should set the groundwork for the future of the program.
