Kemper Academy eyes 2003

DEKALB Kemper Academy finds itself with a "new" head football coach this fall after Gary Lee, last year's head man, recently left to take a similar position at Clarkdale.
That leaves KA headmaster Pete McCleskey looking at pulling double duty. McCleskey has coached the Rams before. In fact, he was their coach prior to Lee's two years at the DeKalb school.
Kemper finished 5-5 last fall, beating Rebul Academy (42-7), Newton County Academy (28-0), Central Academy (45-0), Sylva-Bay Academy (13-0), and Calhoun Academy (52-6), while losing to Hebron Christian (6-2), 2002 Academy Class A champion Heidelberg Academy (35-0), Winston (40-6), East Holmes Academy (27-25), and Wayne (47-0).
McCleskey's last Kemper team finished 5-5 in 2000.
Kemper opens its 2003 season on Aug. 22 at Hebron. The Rams host Rebul on Aug. 29.
After hosting Newton on Sept. 5, Kemper travels to Macon on Sept. 12 to take on Central.
The Rams go to Bay Springs on Sept. 19 to take on Sylva-Bay. Powerful Heidelberg Academy comes to DeKalb on Sept. 26.
The Rams go to Louisville to play Winston on Oct. 3. Kemper travels to Calhoun City to take on Calhoun on Oct. 10.
Kemper hosts East Holmes for homecoming on Oct. 17. The Rams close out the regular season at home against Wayne on Oct. 24.
