First Presbyterian Christian Academy will host Trinity Christian Friday night at Long Bell Stadium. Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
The Highlanders are off to the best start of their football season with two wins already secured in three games played.
The FPCA boys lost game one at Westwood 28-14 but quickly bounced back beating Greater Bethlehem 26-20 and Hilton Head Christian 38-21.
All done with 16 players as injuries still hamper the iron-man team.
“These kids have started buying into the program and are enjoying playing the game,” Highlander coach Terry Middleton said. “We know about playing iron-man and the conditioning we have to go through to be able to play it…I like what is going on right now.”
The Crusaders are well-known to FPCA in basketball and baseball but it’s the first time these two schools have meet on the football field.
Trinity is 1-1 after falling to John Milledge Academy 52-0 but beating Brentwood 35-21.
“They have a lot of depth,” Middleton said. noting they have around 40 players on their roster. “But this is just the challenge we have every year… being conditioned enough to play four quarters against a team that comes in with an offense and defense.”
The Crusaders went 2-11 last year and were 1-3 in Region 2-AAA of the Georgia Independent School Association. The Eagles return seven seniors from last season.
