The Glenbrook Apaches will travel to Tallulah tomorrow night as they try to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Tallulah enters the game 0-6, but Glenbrook head coach Ryan Porter says that doesn't guarantee anything for the Apaches.
"They're 0-6, and that might be good for us, but it's also dangerous," he said. "I told the kids coming into this ball game that I think we have the better team, I think we have more team speed, especially with getting Willie Thompson back, but the best team doesn't always win."
Last week the Apaches didn't play well and lost to River Oaks, 42-0. Porter doesn't want to see another outing like that for the Apaches.
"We just didn't execute very well last week, especially on the offensive side," he said. "We need to come out and score early this week, and put some points on the board. That will allow us to play with some confidence. We need to start fast and score early."
Porter feels the Trojans will try to negate the Apaches' speed and also try to shorten the game by running the football.
"I really think they will come out in a double-tight end wishbone against us," he said. "They will try to establish the run and slow the game down. We want to force them out of that and force them into their spread offense."
Defensively the Trojans run a four-man front.
"At times they will run a tight 4-3, and at times they will run a split four," Porter said. "Their two inside linebackers are linemen, so we want to stretch it sideline to sideline against them. We want to force those linebackers to try to run us down."
Porter feels his team is ready and up for their challenge tomorrow night.
"We've had a good week of practice," he said. "They guys have displayed a good attitude and that made for a consistent week of practice. I think they are going to be up for this game and they know what's at stake. We're already against the wall beause we're on the road. It's a district ball game and we have to have this. I think we're going to come out and play well tomorrow night."
Game time is 7 p.m.
