First Presbyterian Christian Academy plans to use each second of its final 48 minutes of action in 2012 to clinch a win.
No, it won’t give them a winning season or a chance at a playoff spot, but it will be the icing on the cake of the Highlanders’ inaugural season. Their record might indicate a bad season until one takes into account that the Highlanders have scored 156 points this season.
That is a major accomplishment considering FPCA has a roster of only about 20 kids who play on both sides of the ball.
So, at 7:30 tonight, the Highlanders welcome Fullington Academy to Long Bell Stadium. Highlander coach Andy Yanzetich said he studied film on the Trojans, and they play much like his team does.
“Fullington runs the spread like we do. They are a pass-first, run-second offense,” he said Yanzetich said the Trojans run a 3-5 alignment on defense.
“Which could help us in the running game and give our short passing game fits,” he said.
To gain the upper hand, Yanzetich said his defense needs to pressure Fullington’s quarterback.
“We feel we cover well, but anybody can get open if the quarterback has all day to throw,” he said.
Also tonight, FPCA will honor their seniors and pay tribute to local veterans. Tail-gating festivities will be held before the game.
