With mascots like the Volunteers and Patriots,Â Friday nightÂ is shaping up to be quite the battle between Starkville Academy and visiting Madison-Ridgeland Academy.
Patriots coach Forrest Williams knows that is no exaggeration with the talent that Starkville Academy brings to the table.
âThey give you a lot of movement on offense,â Williams said. âThey will take some shots down the field. They have a solid running game that we are going to have to be dedicated to stop.â
According to Williams, the Vols not only field a versatile defense, but defensively they âreally run to the ball hardâ and have strong defensive tackles that âget in there and get after it.â
âWe have been talking all week about making sure we know where they are at all times,â Williams said.
One player who is extremely concerned with the Starkville Academy defense is Patriotsâ quarterback Caleb Shufelt, whom Williams is counting on to lead the team to victory.
