Prep school confident after big win



“I think we’ve got to have another big night from our defensive line,” he said. “If our defensive line can control things, we’ll be alright.”

Offensively, GMC Prep will continue to establish a strong ground attack Friday night, but Simpson suggests the Bulldogs may try and open up the field with their passing game.

“We’ll continue to add some wrinkles and do some things to open things up,” he said. “We’ve added things week to week for us to open things up, but it’s still going to allow us to manage the clock.”

For Simpson and his Bulldogs, the goal is to be in the game in the fourth quarter; if the team is within reach, they showed last week that they can put big points on the board when it counts.

“If we’re only down a couple scores late, we feel like we’ve got a chance,” Simpson said. “We’ve just got to limit the damage early and try to hold on to it.”

Celebrating Alumni Weekend in addition to Friday night’s contest, the Bulldogs hope to have a large crowd at Davenport Field to cheer the squad on against a tough Lincoln County team.

“Playing them at home is always a good thing,” Simpson said. “Having a big crowd behind us is going to be an advantage.”

GMC Prep and Lincoln County will take the field for the opening kickoff at 7:30 p.m.
