HOLLY POND — The Broncos have reached the Class 3A playoffs each of the past three years.

And they'll no doubt look to add to that streak in 2019.

Holly Pond kicked off fall camp earlier this month with small numbers but big expectations under head coach Mike Bates.

Led by talented quarterback Kyler Chaney, the Broncos will compete in Region 5 against county rivals Hanceville and Vinemont, among others.
