On to high school football and certainly one of the biggest games on the schedule this week takes place on the 1-A level, as Blountstown heads south to Port St. Joe with at least a share of first in 1-A district two on the line. The Tigers are 5-1, two and oh overall, and playing a very consistent brand of football this season.
The only loss to 2-B Chipley, otherwise they've won those other five by an average score of 38-9.
Blountstown Head Coach
"Yeah coming into the season we were returning some skill kids from last year, we thought our skill would be in place, our quarterback, our running backs were back. But we replaced three starting offensive lineman and that was our concern coming in, that those kids do their job in order for us to move the ball on offense and they are starting to come around and play much better now."
As for the game plan heading to St. Joe, Jordan believes his offense is going to have to play a ball control kind of game, play keepaway if you will.
"Offensively for us we're gonna have to control the line of scrimmage and and try to keep the ball away from them, sustain drives. You know they've got the best player in the district, maybe in the Panhandle of Florida in Calvin Pryor, he's their big play guy. The best way to keep him from having big plays is keep the ball away from them so that's hopefully what we'll be able to do."
Jordan quick to point out the Sharks 2-4 overall record is deceiving, given the tough non district schedule St. Joe's played. That game Friday in St. Joe a 7 eastern start.
