“The biggest thing is just guys being in the system for a while and knowing what they’re supposed to be doing, and being dedicated to the weight room,” said Northeast head football coach Jeremy Wiggins.

“That’s one thing we’ve been trying to do consistently since I’ve been here, is be in the weight room and know what we’re doing. Breaking down film, you know, just really trying to make ourselves a good football team and get us better each week in and week out.”

Coach Wiggins spoke about the match up.

“They’re a good football team. Coach Von does a good job down there. He has those guys well coached. Well disciplined,” said Wiggins. “They’re putting up a lot of points, so we’re going try to slow them down a little bit. You know, try to play our game. Watching them on film. They’re big just like us. Fast. Physical, so it’ll be a good game against Bleckley County.”
