The South Florence Bruins travels to Darlington for the annual matchup of the two crosstown rivals at the Falcon Stadium.
The Bruins defeated Darlington last season by forfeit, and the Falcons enter Friday’s tilt still looking for their first win.
“I’m going into this game very positively,” said junior wide receiver Daniel Perkins.“The team and I have been working hard mentally and physically this week to prepare us for this upcoming challenge.”
While the win column stands empty for Darlington so far, head coach Raymond Jennings is anticipating to turn that around this Friday.
“My practice strategy this week has been focusing on the players mistakes and fixing those mistakes,” said Jennings. “The other coaches and I have been working on making the defense stronger. My job is to lead them into becoming smarter players and students.”
Jennings’ biggest concern entering the game is consistency from the defensive unit.
“I want the defense to be more consistent and to be able to execute when we are counted on,” said Jennings. “That means when we have a turnover and we are in a bad situation, our job defensively is to get off the field.”
The Falcon’s have been dealing with a large amount of injuries this season which means that they have to practice harder than before to make sure they’re getting the job done with such a limited roster.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Falcon Stadium.
