Gameday Notes: Jags vs Fork Union
Coach Jones alluded to the Jags making some really good strides on the practice field. He said, “We really have had great practices. The last three days of last week were tremendous, we came out this week ready to go, and the kids are practicing at a high level. Usually that transfers into games, so I’m not worried.”
On Monday they practiced in shells for almost two hours then returned to full pads on Tuesday and Wednesday before cutting back to just helmets for Thursday’s practice which lasted about an hour. Coach Jones further noted about the weeks’ practice by saying, “It’s been a good practice schedule, they came to work every day and we’re executing very well too. One of the concerns on defense is they run a lot of formations offensively, and we’re trying to make sure we adjust to those formations correctly.”
Things to note about today’s match-up against Fork Union.
Look for the Jags to come out and throw more passes. Coach Jones remarked over the last couple weeks that they want to be more balanced instead of leaning so much on the run as they have the previous four games. But the Jags offense will also be tested by the Fork Union defense, which is probably their strong point.
Also look for the Jags defense to really get after the Fork Union quarterback and put some pressure on him. Coach Clark thinks that if they can get pressure on the quarterback then they can cause some mistakes and turnovers.
Jags and Fork Union kick off at 4pm at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
