PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The American Charlie Grill and Tavern Game of the Week this week has us focused on Wakulla at Blountstown.

Coach Greg Jordan and his Tigers will host Wakulla in a battle of two teams that are three and oh. The Tigers coming off a 20-7 win last week over Marianna, before that, this 33-6 win over Rutherford and they opened with a 54-20 win over Freeport.

This week things get a lot tougher, hosting 3-0 Wakulla that has wins over Chiles, Gadsden and Munroe. And three wins over a rather young Greg Jordan, going back a little.

”I played here back in the mid-80s when we had four classifications. And Wakulla was in our district back then, and only one team made it. That was our nemesis to try and get out of the district to get in the playoffs. And I was oh and three against those guys as a player. You know they have no weaknesses, they’re a team that has a 11on and 11 off pretty much. And so their depth is quite more significant than ours is, obviously with a 1A school. We have watched a lot of film on them and game planning, you don’t see any weaknesses in anything that they do.”

Despite his team’s 3-0 start, well like every coach, Jordan will tell you there’s always something to be working on, to be improving upon.

“Like every team we’re still identifying things that we can do. And things that are giving us problems but overall I’m pleased with where we’re at and we’re just trying to continue to get better each week ,as the season progresses, trying to stay healthy, hang in there towards the middle part, end of this schedule where we got a change.”

As for the Eagles, they come into this match up 3-0 as well, with victories over Chiles, Gadsden and Munroe. Only the game with Chiles was close, in fact it was an overtime win. That game at Bowles Field Friday night set for 7 and it’s one several we’ll feature on Friday Night Overtime.

Our game of the week is sponsored by American Charlie Grill and Tavern.
