A lot of unknowns come together in this game.

Both teams sport new coaches and both are coming off tough seasons.

“We’re hungry for a good start, and I know they are, too,” Coosa Christian coach Jason Touart said. “To do that, we’ve got to win in the trenches.”

Touart was pleased with his team’s performance in the first half of last week’s jamboree against Gaston. The Bulldogs led 25-17 at halftime and the Conquerors had a shot to score again just before the buzzer. However, depth took control in the second half and Gaston cruised to a 58-17 win.

“We just ran out of gas,” Touart said. “We don’t have enough reserves to compete against Gaston right now.”

Winterboro won its jamboree and should come into the game feeling good about its chances.

“Their quarterback (Clay Twymon) and running backs (B.J. Twymon and Jaylen Ashley) really played well,” Touart said. 

B.J. Twymon is nursing an ankle injury and could be sidelined this week.

“This will be a good test for us,” Touart said. “We’ll find out who’s ready to play.”
