Boys Middle School Football, Boys Varsity Football · Chickasaw: keys to victory


The Chieftains are 2-1 and 1-0 in 2A Region 1. A win tonight could propel them into an important spot at the top of region play. Here are the keys to a victory at St. Luke’s.

1. Win the turnover battle. The Chieftains have to play mistake free on thew offensive side of the ball. Turnovers and penalties are drive killers.

2. Run the ball. The key to the success of the season thus far is the ability to churn huge chunks of yards and control the clock. The stable of running backs should make this possible.

3. Convert in the red zone. The Chieftains need to score at a high clip. This game could be a shootout with 2 high octane offenses. Points will be at a preimium.

Look for a heavy dose of running from St. Luke’s QB Jermaine Brown and Chieftain QB AJ Phillips. Perhaps the signal caller who gets the most help from their RB committees.

Prediction:

Chickasaw 30, St. Luke’s 26
