Trojans ready for region

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, September 3, 2008

The Charles Henderson Trojans knocked off the Greenville Tigers last week, and they are looking to make the Tigers of Tallassee their next victim. The Trojans (1-0) are preparing for a versatile offensive attack that features not only different sets, but size too, and a defense that is physical and fast.

&uot;They are a difficult team to prepare for,&uot; Trojan head coach Hugh Fountain said.

It all starts up front for Tallassee (1-0)with 6-foot-5 offensive lineman Chris Stice. Stice weighed in at roughly 330 pounds, and could make for a miserable night on one side of the Trojans defensive line.

Quarterback Trey Cochran-Gill, tailback Mike Smith and wide out Tyler Grant are the headliners of the Tallassee offense.

&uot;They have an outstanding kicking game,&uot; Fountain said.

Fountain also said the Tigers have a lot of experience in the kicking game, with returning starters coming back this season.

The Tigers defense is attentive to detail on the field.

&uot;They all run to the football,&uot; Fountain said.

Defensive end Cody Kilgore poses a notable threat to the Trojans’ offensive line, and Fountain said their linebackers are nothing less than &uot;impressive.&uot;

The Trojans have been working through the remaining aftershock of hits in the Greenville game.

&uot;The Greenville game was a tough and physical ball game,&uot; Fountain said. &uot;They had a good day back on Monday. It’s business as usual.&uot;

The injury report is clear for the Trojans this week.

&uot;They always play hard against us,&uot; Fountain said. &uot;We’ve got to get fundamentally better each day we practice. They (Tallassee coaches) do a great job there and always have them ready to play.&uot;

Tallassee knocked off 4A’s Elmore County in their opener by a score of 21-19.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. tomorrow night at Movie Gallery Stadium.
