THE COACHES

“They’re a gritty team,” Warner Robins head football coach Marquis Westbrook said. “They’re never out of the ball game. We know that we have to play from whistle to whistle every play, and we have to play from the first quarter to the fourth quarter. We just have to put that in our kids’ mindset that they’re going to fight.”



“We’re going to have to play mistake-free football,” Northside head football coach Kevin Kinsler said. “And, we’re going to have to find a way to keep their athletes from running wild.”
