The High Point Central Bison are 0-8 on the season and will try for their first victory of the year when they take on the Bobcats of Glenn high school tonight.

The Bobcats are looking to approve on their 2-6 record.  They were defeated by Northwest Guilford last week by the score of 20-8.

Glenn head coach Stephen Herring says they have been getting better offensively even though their record may not reflect as such.

“We have gotten little bit better every game but we just need to make sure we stop shooting our-selves in the foot offensively,” Herring said.  “We have to put some points up on the board to help our defense out because our defense has been pretty consistent and steady throughout.”

Herring says that he knows traditionally the Bison have been a big strong team and his squad must bring their A game in or to win.  He says they have some speed that they can use in certain situations to exploit any defensive weaknesses.

Herring went on to say that it’s been two years since his program has won a conference game, so he would love to end the year with a couple of victories to “right the ship.”

One of the major positives Herring says he can take away from this season is that his team competes and gives it every thing they have.  He says they can improve all across the board and focus on some technique aspects of the game heading into next season.

Herring says they have a little over 30 guys on the team and they have a lot of freshman that they can build with for next season. He says they are heading in the right direction and continue to build from one week to the next.

He says they have been a second half team for most of the season but must correct the mistakes in the first half.  He says many of the games this year they have won the second half.

Glenn wide receiver Christen Wilson has been making plays all season. He hauled in three touchdown catches in the first half against Atkins earlier this season in a torrential downpour.

“He’s an athlete, he’s got great speed and leaping ability and I’m glad he’s on our team and we don’t have to guard him,” Herring continued.  “He’s about 6-foot-2 and can jump up and grab the ball.  He can run past people, he can do some pretty amazing things.”

High Point Central have played many of their opponents tough but has not overcome the hurdle of getting their first victory.
