Panama City Beach, FL--To prep football and a rather big ballgame set for Tommy Oliver Stadium Friday night. The Arnold Marlins traveling east to take on county and 5-A district 1 rival Rutherford. This our Southern Orthopedic Specialists game of the week. Here at ten we're focusing on the Marlins who are coming off a win over Lakeside out of Eufala, so they're 2-3 overall. One of those losses though in district play, so definitely plenty of pressure on the fish heading into Friday's game.
Arnold Head Coach
"I hope we can go out there and compete well. Compete the best we possibly can. We haven't played our best game all year, as far a s offense, defense and the kicking game. I hope we can put it together Friday night...Anytime you play a county game they're all big rivalry games. No matter if you're playing Bay, Mosley, no matter who you're playing. They know the kids so it's makes it important to them. Then it being a district game it makes it even bigger."
Rams coach Jeff Rolson says his guys will focus on stopping Arnold's best weapon, Andre Allen. The Rams coming the 28-14 loss to Fort Walton Beach, Rolson hoping a good second half showing in that one might carry over into this week. Game time at T-O set for 7.
