Jays Ready to Run
"We came out kinda flat and our attitude wasn't what it usually is," said senior linebacker Zach Seales. "We let them get a lot of yards and a lot of big plays and things didn't really go how we had it planned out."
But the Jays now turn their attention to doing their job against Hickman this week. In order to slow down the Kewpies aggressive D, Jeff City will once again turn to running back Desmond Wilson who has run for more than 1,300 yards and 21 touchdowns this season."
"You have to move the ball on the ground to win as a football team, and hopefully we can get the running game going again this week," said Jefferson City head coach Ted LePage.
"I just know I gotta run hard and do whatever I do on the field, follow the line, and I know something will open up, and if it don't open up in the beginning it'll open up sooner or later," said Wilson.
Regardless of the fight for district, the Jays know what a win against the rival Kewpies would mean.
"It would probably be the greatest feeling of my life up till now," said Seales.
"To go out there and beat them, knowing it's a rivalry it's the last game of the season, spoil everything that they have, I'd feel great about it," stated Wilson.
So district title or not, Jeff City has a lot to play for after all.
