 2016 Preview 

       Curry finished the 2015 season with a disappointing 1-9 record. Last year Curry finished sixth in Class 4A region five with a 1-5 region record and failed to qualify for the playoffs.

       The Yellow Jackets have not qualified for the playoffs since the 2011 season and would love to end that streak this year. The Yellow Jackets last playoff victory came during the 1996 season. They would love to break through this year with a post season win.

       The offense struggled putting points on the score board as Curry averaged scoring just 11.1 points a game. The Yellow Jackets also struggled on the defensive side of the football as they found little success in stopping opposing offenses and allowed an average of 38.9 points a game.

       The Yellow Jackets would prefer to forget the past two seasons as they have finished with a 2-18 record. Since 2010, the Curry football program has struggled with a record of 12-49.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Curry has not won much with a record of 77-183. Their 30.0% winning percentage ranks 51st in Class 5A and 344th in the AHSAA. The Yellow Jackets have struggled on the football field with only four winning seasons during this time. Their last winning season was 1996.

       The Yellow Jackets are led by head coach Philip Smith who is entering his second season at the helm. His team finished with a 1-9 record in his first season at Curry. The Yellow Jackets have yet to reach the playoffs under his direction. They have not won a region crown with Coach Smith.

       Coach Smith's overall record as a head football coach in ten season stands at 68-44 (60.7%). Over the course of his career, Coach Smith's teams have qualified for the playoffs a total of seven times and won one region championship.

       The Curry Yellow Jackets will play in Class 5A region six during the 2016 season. The Yellow Jackets move up in classification to Class 5A. They may find the going slightly tougher with the move.

       This season, the Yellow Jackets will be a long shot for one of the four playoff spots in region six.

       The Yellow Jackets open the 2016 season at home against non-region opponent Berry Fayette on Friday, August 19 at Hudson/ORear Field. Last year the Berry Fayette Wildcats finished with an overall record of 10-3 and in first place in Class 1A region six. The Wildcats lost in the quarter-finals round of the Class 1A playoffs to Decatur Heritage Christian by a score of 32-26.

       Curry and Berry Fayette have met a total of 5 times on the football field. The Yellow Jackets have a 2-3-0 record against the Wildcats. They last met in 1973 with Curry winning by a score of 41-18.
