Coach Jason Allen stated “ Another good win for our program against a much larger school than ourselves. Our kids continue to show up each week hungry to improve and look at each Friday night as an opportunity, I really like the way we are playing up front. We are finishing blocks and doing the little things it takes to become a really good team.
Defensively we have been very strong all year against the run. I think the strength of our team has been that side of the ball. We will hang our hat on our defense to win big games.”
The Rebels are at home Friday night as they face off against Crenshaw Christian Academy on Torbert Field beginning 7:00 pm ct.
