   Heading into the 2013 football season, Coach Ashley Kuhn felt his Grenada Chargers had a chance to be pretty good.
   There was optimism with 23 seniors and a majority of returnees on the defensive side. Like most teams, their goal was to have a winning season and make the playoffs.
   Grenada has accomplish more than that this season. They finished with their best record in 10 years at 9-2. The Chargers won five division games and are seeded third in the upcoming Class 6A Playoffs. They travel to Starkville to face the second-seeded Yellowjackets.
   “We thought heading into the season that we had a chance to be pretty good,” Kuhn said. “There were questions at quarterback along with injuries and depth issues. We wanted to make sure we won the ones we were supposed to win and steal one. I thought we were able to do that.”
