We didn't have to tell the kids anything. They knew where they were (in the computer rankings) and they were excited. These are the types of games these guys grew up seeing our program be in at this point in the season.
It's a big game both sides. We control what we do and need to continue working hard to achieve it. We do know we need to win and take care of business before we do all the figuring. Practice has been excellent and the kids have picked it up and that's what we need to do Friday to compete against a good football team.
We need to be able to move the ball. At times we've had consistency, but we can't afford to have three plays and out or allow penalties to get us backed up. New Philadelphia is too good of a football team for us to do that. We need to be able to hold it and move it and we really have to put it in the end zone.
