Spring Tour: Phelps ready to turn the corner with Avery

NEWLAND -  The first two seasons at Avery County under coach Jason Phelps were anything but smooth, but it's starting to look like he and the Vikings have turned the corner and looking for a much improved 2017 campaign. 
While the conference lineup or the schedule won't get any easier, Phelps feels like the team is tougher, stronger, and ready for the grueling gauntlet that is the Western Highlands Conference. 
While Spring Practice begins tomorrow for the Vikings, today I was able to catch up with Phelps and get his insight on the program and the upcoming season.
