Trojans search for identity against rival Brentwood

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

According to Wall, there is not much to go off of going into the matchup with the War Eagles, but he admits JMA must be able to make necessary changes throughout the night.

“You’ve kind of got an idea, but at the same time you’re going in with no idea and no game film from any other team they’ve played this year. You’ve got to be able to make offensive, defensive and special team adjustments on the fly,” Wall said. “We feel pretty good about the work we’ve done, but at the same time, a lot of these guys that are stepping into these starting roles still have a lot to prove.”

As one of the bigger rivals for the Trojans, Friday’s game against Brentwood is likely to be an exciting one where Wall hopes his boys come out on top.

“It’s a good rivalry. We’ve played each other for a long time. We know that the crowd is going to come out and support us,” he said. “We’re just proud of the work these guys have put in, and we just hope they get rewarded for it on Friday night.”

Kickoff between the Trojans and War Eagles is 7:30 p.m. Friday at Brentwood.
