The Choctaws rolled through the evening with one touchdown after another, while keeping Central scoreless the entire first half. The defense not only held the opposition, they increased the team’s positive turnover ratio. Overall, the boys in purple and gold showed what a solid team looks like, and what fans can expect for the rest of the season.
BCHS Head Coach Matt Geohagan agrees:
“Our kids did a really good job executing the game plan. They’re very confident right now. They’re very coachable and doing what’s needed to improve, week after week.
“Our offense is doing a great job. Our turnover ratio is positive. The entire offensive line doing good job of handling pressure and creating space for our backs to run. Defensively we’re stopping the run, and doing a good job of running to the football and tackling.
“Deshun Murrell had a good night with 4 touchdowns on the ground. Brody Seales, Toby O’neal and Gavin Wallace all did a great job and stood out as well. But, in order for those guys to have the kind of nights they had, lots of other people had to do their jobs well, too. I’m just really proud of the overall effort we had.
“Our offense did a good job coming out and executing, taking the first drive down for a touchdown. Then the defense forced a turnover the next play. We had lots of good runs and good plays. Our defense did a great job and the secondary covered well. Overall, we’re just playing very solid. We put together several good plays one after the other, which is what a good team has to do to be successful. I was very pleased with the overall flow of the game.”
On how he foresees next week’s game going:
“Calera has a really good football team, some good players like they always do. It’s going to be a challenge for us, which is what we want. We try to schedule teams that will give us a playoff atmosphere. We like to compete against the larger schools and higher classifications. Beating Pelham and Demopolis were huge for us. heading into this week with another higher classification team, we’re really looking forward to it.”
