This week, for us, may possibly be the key game of our season. Coming off a good win against Helias for the conference championship, a whole new season is about to begin.
Districts is what it all comes down to. It determines if our season will continue or not, and tomorrow night we will face our first Class 6 team, Jefferson City. The Jays have done some good things this season and after watching some film, they have gotten it together and are playing some good football. We have had a great week of practice with a lot of hard work and focus. Being that it is senior night tonight, the seniors have even more riding on this game. This will be our last game on Rock Bridge Field and we want to make it a good one.
As for me, this week was pretty average recruiting-wise. I received calls from coach (Karl) Dorrel of UCLA on Wednesday night and from coach (Mo) Latimore from Kansas State on Thursday night. I am glad that this week was pretty laid back on the recruiting end because this week may be one of the biggest games I have been a part of and it will take everyone’s best effort tonight to come out on top, including myself. We have done all the preparation necessary and (Rock Bridge coach A.J.) Ofodile has gotten us ready to utilize our strengths in order to play the best game possible. It should be a great night of football. God bless.
