But after the Knights followed two close victories with a blowout win over Glenn Hills on Friday, Turner's outlook has changed.
"I feel pretty comfortable with the team now," he said.
Turner rushed for four touchdowns and Evans remained unbeaten with a 49-13 win over the Spartans.
The Knights (3-0) entered with a pair of team-bonding wins, fending off Richmond Academy's offense in the fourth quarter of the season opener, then posting a comeback win at Grovetown in the waning moments.
This time, Evans needed no late magic.
Glenn Hills (0-2) stifled its chances early and often with five turnovers and 12 penalties. Two first-half turnovers led to 14 points for Evans, allowing the Knights to take a 35-13 halftime lead.
After the game, Glenn Hills coach Andrew Young told his group of 40 players to remain optimistic and that the team is improving. Young has been leading the program for only three months, and the squad still has eight games left in the season to perfect the new offensive and defensive schemes he brought with him.
"I've asked a lot from them," he said. "We've just got to get tougher mentally and get more focused."
Evans, which didn't commit a turnover, scored on its first six possessions.
On 10 carries, Turner rushed for 123 of the team's 191 yards. Quarterback Glenn Cassedy completed 7 of 8 passes for 110 yards.
Glenn Hills quarterback Kendrick Armstrong rushed for 121 yards.
