“You feel a little bit different going through practice during the week because you know who you’re playing,” Tattnall head football coach Chance Jones said. “Even if you try to keep it from the guys, and call them by their number, opponent number 5, they still know. They still know who they’re playing, and who’s coming to town.”
“You have to play good. I mean, they’re a good team,”Stratford head football coach Mark Farriba said. “You have to play good. You can’t go out there and not be at your best, and expect to win.”
