For today’s Junior Varsity football matchup between Glenn and Mt. Tabor each team will look to get back into rhythm.  Last week s game for Glenn was canceled due to weather concerns and Mt. Tabor is coming off back-to-back game cancellations against Winston-Salem prep and Carver due to lack of players.

Glenn is looking to improve upon its 1-1 record while Mt. Tabor seeks to go 2-0 and stay undefeated.  With the long layoff for both teams rust may be an issue early on.

Mt. Tabor opened up the season with a decisive victory over Reagan by the score of 21-7.  Glenn started their 2016 campaign with a victory against North Forsyth before getting blitzed by Reagan the next week falling 24-8 to the Raiders.

Glenn JV head coach Stephen Herring says he is happy with the performance of his team thus far in the season.  He says they are a young team and since they only have around 33 players his guys are going through ups and downs.

“Defensively I think we have improved on our alignments and assignments,” said Herring.  “We are definitely reading our keys and aligning better than we were.

Offensively we are catching the ball better, we just got o be able to run the ball better. We have to help our defense out and not keep them on the field most of the time.”

Herring said their game plan going into today’s game is to just focus on his own team.  He says the coaching staff hopes they have prepared their team well enough during the preseason and summer.

“Mt. Tabor is a good team, they are a solid team.  They are always a big team and we are not the biggest kids on the block so we are going to have to come out and be on our A game offensively, defensively and special teams. We can’t afford costly turnovers and defensively they just have to continue performing strong like they have the last two games.

Mt. Tabor JV head coach Mike Lovelace says he knows Glenn is a tough team and looks forward to the game.  He says he was happy with the Week 1 performance of his team against Reagan.  He is looking forward to his team playing after the long layoff of the last two weeks.
