With four Region 8-AA games now under its belt, the Banks County High School football team is getting down to the nitty-gritty of the 2008 season.
That’s why this Friday’s short road trip to East Jackson High School is so important. With several schools in 8-AA beginning to separate themselves in the standings, the Leopards need a win to keep up. After last Friday’s tough 12-7 loss to North Oconee in a defensive struggle, the BCHS team will try to regroup this week and be mentally and physically ready for the East Jackson Eagles.
While East Jackson is still a relatively young program overall in terms of years of existence, BCHS coach Blair Armstrong has respect for the Eagles and is stressing to his team this week the importance of not overlooking this Friday’s opponent.
