Big Match-Up in 3A as Cody Hosts Jackson

Written by on September 27, 2019

TWO OF THE TOP THREE TEAMS WILL CLASH FRIDAY NIGHT AS THE CODY BRONCS HOST THE JACKSON BRONCS FOR HOMECOMING. BOTH OF THESE TEAMS EMPLOY A STRONG RUNNING ATTACK AND FEATURES ATHLETES AT EVERY POSITION. THE ENERGY AT SPIKE VANNOY STADIUM WILL BE ELECTRIC AND HEAD COACH MATT MCFADDEN TALKS ABOUT THE MATCH-UP.

“THAT’S WHY YOU PLAY THE GAME. WE WANT COMPETITORS THAT ARE, YOU KNOW WE WANT TO PLAY ANYBODY, ANYPLACE, ANYTIME. I LIKE THAT. THEY COME TO OUR HOUSE. IT IS HOMECOMING BUT THAT’S EVEN BETTER. WE WANT A HOMECOMING THAT’S FEATURING A COUPLE OF THE TOP TEAMS IN 3A. SO THAT OUGHT TO BE A GREAT ONE FOR THE FANS.”

JACKSON FEATURES A HIGH OCTANE OFFENSE, ONE THAT LEADS ALL OF CLASS IN YARDS PER GAME. IT ALL STARTS WITH THEIR RUNNING BACK WHO AVERAGE’S OVER 200 YARDS PER GAME RUSHING THE ROCK.

“YOU KNOW ONE OF THE BEST BACKS IN THE STATE. SO IT’S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT TO CONTAIN HIM. ALTHOUGH HE’S A SMALLER GUY AND HE’S QUICK, I THINK THE THING THAT IMPRESSES ME THE MOST IS HE’S VERY STRONG AND HIS BALANCE IS AMAZING. HE’S NOT AFRAID TO RUN BETWEEN THE TACKLES. SOME LITTLE GUYS ARE, HE’S NOT. HE RUNS VERY EFFICIENTLY IN A AND B GAPS.”

WITH TWO TEAMS THAT ARE SO EVENLY MATCHED BOTH OFFENSIVELY AND DEFENSIVELY TURNOVERS AND SPECIAL TEAMS COULD BE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IN EFFECTING THE OUTCOME.

“WE NEED SOME BIG PLAYS IN THE KICKING GAME AND WHETHER THAT’S CONTAINING THEIR RETURN GAME OR TAKING ADVANTAGE IN OUR GAME, I THINK SPECIAL TEAMS WILL BE BIG. THEN JUST LIMITING BIG PLAYS AND TURNOVERS. YOU KNOW YOU GET TWO TEAMS THAT ARE REALLY GOOD AND A LOT OF TIMES IT COMES DOWN TO WHO HAS MORE OPPORTUNITIES. SO BEING ABLE TO CREATE SOME TAKEAWAYS, LIMITING OUR TURNOVERS AND EXPLOSIVE PLAYS.”

CLASS 3A FOOTBALL BEGINS TONIGHT WITH A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW AS CODY HOST JACKSON AT SPIKE VANNOY STADIUM FOR HOMECOMING. YOU CAN LISTEN TO ALL THE ACTION ON KODI AM 1400 AND 96.7FM WITH PRE-GAME BEGINNING AT 5:30, KICK-OFF AT 6PM.
