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.
â€śThey give you a lot of movement on offense,â€ť Williams said. â€śThey 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€ť
According to Williams, the Vols not only field a versatile defense, but defensively they â€śreally run to the ball hardâ€ť and have strong defensive tackles that â€śget in there and get after it.â€ť
â€śWe have been talking all week about making sure we know where they are at all times,â€ť 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.
