The Carver Yellow Jackets will face off against the North Surry Greyhounds this afternoon.  The Yellow Jackets are seeking back-to-back victories after defeating Surry Central 30-8. North Surry is coming off of a bye week.  The Greyhounds want to shake off their last game, which was a loss against West Stokes with a victory against Carver.

The Yellow Jackets are coming off of a decisive victory last week against Surry Central, which was their first win of the year.  Carver JV head coach Walter Black says he was most impressed with the teamwork his guys displayed.  He says their offensive concepts are very simple and his guys executed very well.

While talking about last week’s game, Black said, “D’Angelo McMillan played well, and he is the guy most people will remember, but I love the way the team contributed to his success. They did a great job as a team last night.”

Black continued by saying, “I’m happy we came away with the win, but at the same time I feel like we have to improve defensively.  I think defense usually comes quickly but every week people will try new things to defeat your defense.  North Surry is going to be very good, so our defense is going to have to be very disciplined, and we have to figure out what we are going to take from them.  We can’t take away everything, so we have to figure out what they do well and try to take that away from them.”

The Greyhounds’ last game against West Stokes was a hard-fought defeat.

Head coach Tyler Hiatt says his guys showed signs of a good team if they are able to put all four quarters together.  He said they are either starting fast and fading late or starting slow and leave their best play for the second half.

“We do not have much information on Carver’s JV at this point. Based on previous years, I’m sure they will have good speed in all phases of the game that we will have to prepare for,” said Hiatt.  “Based on previous years, their strengths will be speed in space and the ability to have multiple players that can make plays on any given play.”

Coach Hiatt went on to say his team is getting better in both offense and defensive phases of the game.  He says they have a good football team that competes in every quarter of the game.  He thinks his teams’ intensity is very important and a must when they play a team such as Carver.

Coach Black says he doesn’t want to change much from last week but simply wants to perfect the schemes that are in place now.  He says he understands how speed can impact the game and use their team speed to expose the defense in some fashion.

“They will probably do some things to keep us from doing what we like to do and we will do some things to try and take advantage of the changes they will make,” Black continued.  “I hope my guys come in with the right attitude, ready to play hard, and we will see how it goes.”

Black says a successful season for him would be an undefeated conference season but he will be happy as long as his guys are work-ing hard to achieve that goal.
