Coach Enright sat down with the Sports Marketing class to share a preview of this Friday’s varsity football game vs. Greenwood. Game will be at Greenwood on Friday, September 29, with kickoff at 7:00 PM.
SM: What are your expectations for the game?
CE: Going into week 7, we expect to be a team that has improved over the course of the season and is hitting on all cylinders for the playoffs.
SM: Offensively, how prepared is the team for the game?
CE: As an offense, we have been working on limiting turnovers. We went turnover free last week for the first time all season. Very pleased with that execution. We have also been working on getting all of our skilled players involved in the game. Teams key in on Tyrone Tracy, but we have many other skilled players who we expect to make big plays. We’ve shown that over the past weekends.
SM: What are the challenges against the Woodmen?
CE: Their Division 1 linebacker, Tim Johns, is heavily being recruited and plays very well. They also have a very good defensive line as well. Offensively, Brandon Rosado, their running back, is a tough player to bring down. They have the leading receiving tight end in the conference and a very talented quarterback.
SM: How will some of the key injured Hawks impact the team?
CE: Losing Austin Walker hurt our offensive line, but they have responded very well after shifting guys around. We are very proud of Austin for continuing with the team and providing his leadership. Noah Ray, who has been out since the Blue/Gold Scrimmage, is one week away from returning to the field. We are excited to get his positive leadership back on our team.
SM: What are your final thoughts for this weekend’s game against the Woodmen?
CE: We know that going into Greenwood, a conference rival with a 5-1 record, will be a tough game. Our seniors are going into their last regular season road game of their career and won’t take the Woodmen lightly. We hope to get off to a quick start with our strong offense. But, we know that if things don’t go well early, our kids will battle through the game.
