Taylorville Tornadoes Football Coach Jeb Odam Excited For Season

This is part one of a series of articles about the upcoming High School football season.

The 2019 High School football schedules have come out and Taylorville football coach Jeb Odam is excited about the new challenges that every season faces. Odam is in his eleventh year with the Taylorville Tornadoes and says every year is different.


The Tornadoes start with their first three games of the season at home before going on the road and Coach Odam says he’ll be able to tell a lot from the first game against Mount Vernon.
