The Deerfield-Windsor Story
In Southwest Georgia, speed wins. Coach Allen Lowe, a second-generation coach at Deerfield-Windsor, is known for his fast-paced practices and games. On offense, defense, and special teams, he wants to create a dizzying pace for the opponent, which he calls the “perfect storm.” That style has led the Knights to three state titles in eight years, but in the 2015 state championship, the perfect storm fell just short. While Coach Lowe hurts for his seniors, he has a stacked team ready to ring the Friday Night cowbells and make another run at state. #SettleYourScore Deerfield-Windsor Knights

un-specialized
Most coaches only want their boys playing football and lifting weights. Coach Lowe encourages his boys to play multiple sports. Why? Because it makes them better football athletes. #SettleYourScore Deerfield-Windsor Knights

Victory Lap
This golf cart normally hauls trainer supplies. But after a 42-28 win over their biggest rival last Friday night, these senior Knights took it for a victory lap. #TeamOn Deerfield-Windsor Knights, Student Photographer, Byers Morris
