Very quietly, Kell head coach Derek Cook has transformed the Kell Longhorns football program into one of the best programs in Georgia. With a 35-12 record in the last four years, including their first region championship in 2010, they are a team to be reckoned with in the AAAA class. But coming into a season opener at the Corky Kell Classic versus eventual AAAAA state champion Grayson, Cook was faced with a lot of question marks on defense.

Kipp Adams/ESPN.comCornerback Brendan Langley says Georgia has pushed past Alabama as his leader.
“We only returned four starters on defense, and Brendan had never played cornerback before,” Cook said of standout athlete Brendan Langley. “He did a great job covering No. 6 and No. 4 for Grayson, and that was when we knew we would be all right on defense.”

In his first year on defense, Langley (Marietta, Ga./Kell) made 60 tackles, six interceptions, five pass break-ups and two fumble recoveries. The 6-foot-1, 186-pound rising senior credits former Kell standout Brian Randolph, a 2011 Tennessee signee and SEC All-Freshmen selection, with helping him make the transition.
