There are several area teams in both Georgia and Florida vying for state championships and here is just some of the things that some of the head coaches are saying.
Cairo head football coach Tom Fallaw says, "At this time of year, if you make any mistakes, good teams are going to beat you and when you get in these playoff games, you need to play to your best ability and hopefully we'll do that."
Godby head football coach Shelton Crews says, "It doesn't matter what you've done in games 1-10. It's about the team that gets on a roll right now."
Bainbridge head football coach Ricky Woods says,"If you go deep in the playoffs, you're going to have won some close games. You're going to have to win some close games to continue because everybody is going to be close the about the same."
FAMU High head football coach Ira Reynolds says "You play tough teams early, you get yourself ready early and then by the time your midway through the latter part of your season, you play bigger and better programs."
North Florida Christian head coach Casey Weldon says, "All the little things get you in the playoffs, so we got eliminate the little mistakes and just let our play-makers make plays."
NFC High wide receiver Darrius McQueen adds, "We're just trying to get down there and do whatever it takes to get back to state."
Fallaw summed it up best when he says, "That's what happens this time of year. Either, you're through peaking and you're picking up equipment on Monday. You're finding ways to win and hopefully we're not picking up equipment on Monday."
