While there’s the potential for a blowout in this game, there’s also the potential for an upset, according to Glencoe coach Lee Ozmint.

“They’re a dangerous team,” he said. “We’ve got to do what we do and do it well or they could sneak up and bite us.”

Ozmint said that Ohatchee has a good offense but the defense has been hit hard by injuries.

“The defense is kind of thin,” he said. “Most of their injuries have hit that side of the team.”

Meanwhile, Glencoe is as healthy as a team can be at this stage of the season.

“We’re going to be prepared,” Ozmint said. “These kids are able to focus and stay focused. We’ve got a special group this year. They go out and do their job, period. Anyone who doesn’t do that sticks out like a sore thumb.”

The Yellow Jackets currently hold down the top position in Class 3A Region 6, a game ahead of Piedmont and Walter Wellborn. Glencoe, however, holds the tiebreaker over both teams. 

Last week against Ashville, Dylan Stone finished with 285 combined yards. He rushed 15 times for 116 yards and completed 9 of 22 passes for 169 yards.

Thomas Ozmint gained 237 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 26 carries. 

Andrew Willis had four receptions for 73 yards. 

Mason Brown led defensively with eight tackles, while Austin Bush had six and Pace Ozmint five.
