Greer is set to take on the Union County Yellow Jackets in what is known as the “Jacket Bowl” on Friday. Last year, the Jacket Bowl was a blowout victory for Greer, in their 42-7 victory over UC after the dust settled on Dooley Field.
Despite a 1-3 record, Greer players are not giving up, and continue to practice hard in preparation for Union. When asked how the team is doing after their loss to Mauldin, and in preparation for Union, senior offensive tackle Erik Garret stated, “We are having a good week of practice. Personally, I have had a lot of things I had to work on and still to do going into this Wednesday practice.”
“The team is upbeat, regaining focus, and preparing for situations they know they can handle”, said defensive line coach Raashad Jackson. “They are also continuing to stay positive and not listening to the naysayers.”
There has been a lot of tension in the community due to the team’s performance, but the Greer Yellow Jackets are unaffected and are working hard to better themselves.
“Senior leadership definitely pumps us up,” said Garret. Greer needs high morale and all the confidence they can muster if they hope to rally back form their early season struggles. For now, their focus is simply on winning the Jacket Bowl, just like they did last year.
