Mosley football motivated heading into week five

LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Under the direction of head coach Jeremy Brown, Mosley football practices are getting tougher and the schedule is too, although that's not fazing the Dolphins yet.

Heading into a week five clash with Fort Walton Beach, the Dolphins are 4-0 for the second straight season. This year's record is already better than last year's start in one clear way: for just the second time in six years, the Dolphins have beaten West Florida.

The Jaguars handed Mosley their first loss in 2017, the latest in a string of recent struggles against region teams further west in the state.

Mosley's defense is only allowing six points per game. Special teams scored in the first three games. Despite a few untimely turnovers against West Florida and a 13 point outing, the offense seems to be clicking as well.

Brown says the team still hasn't played a perfect game, and that may be true. What's important is that the team is getting better and believing in themselves.

"We've been trying to tell them since the spring they've got a chance to be a really good football team and the kids are starting to believe it," Brown said. "Once you get the kids believing it and the coaches are on the same page, you know you've got a chance to maybe compete and win some games that maybe in the past you haven't been able to win or didn't even compete in. The expectations we've been talking about are try to be a championship program but be consistent."

The Dolphins gun for a 5-0 start Friday night at Tommy Oliver Stadium.
