Introductions are necessary in this game.
Southeastern is a new high school located in Remlap in Blount County between Oneonta and Pinson.
There has been an elementary school there for years, but since the decision was made to create a high school, they’ve just been adding a grade at a time. Right now, the oldest students are 10th graders.
But Coosa has played the Mustangs in junior high football the last couple of years, so the Conquerors won’t go in totally blind.
“I haven’t got to see much film of them from this year,” Coosa coach Van Owens said. “But from talking to coaches and seeing the film I have seen, they like to run the spread a lot.”
Meanwhile, Coosa has won three games in a row and will end the season with a respectable record after starting 0-6.
“Hopefully, we can take care of business this week and end the season on a positive note,” Owens said. “These wins have made the kids more enthusiastic and more focused. Hopefully, it will carry on into next season.”
In nine games, Southeastern has scored a grand total of 13 points. They have been shut out seven times.
Last week against Woodville, Austin Mills ran for 95 yards on 17 carries, while Ben Mills had 63 yards and a touchdown on 16 attempts.
Ben Mills had 17 tackles, followed by Noah Williamson with 12, Seth Williamson with 11, Matt Aldridge and Caleb Sanderson with eight each and Austin Mills with seven.
