Editor's Note: Here’s a look at the Baker School football team's offense by position. Our June 4-6 edition will feature a look at the Gator defense.

BAKER — The Baker School football team's summer workouts start June 9, and the Gators are trying to repeat as District 1-1A champions this fall.

The team enters summer drills coming off a 41-34 win over Chipley in the May 22 game.

Baker Coach Matt Brunson, who installed a new spread, hurry up offense spring, said the summer will be spent getting the Gators in the condition needed to run a fast-paced attack.

The team must replace tailback D.J. Thomas, who last year rushed for more than 2,000 yards. The good news is plenty of talent returns. And in Brunson’s system, if a player sticks around long enough and puts in the work, he will have a chance to play by senior year.


Jon Beck, a rising junior who returns as the starter, started a few games as a freshman when then-senior Adam Crowson went down with an injury.
