Question: Who will be a tougher game for North Augusta, Strom Thurmond or Dutch Fork? from @JefLeppard7
JB's Got the Answer: I believe
that the Yellow Jackets will get a solid game challenge with both of
those teams. Obviously, when you're analyzing games it is, for me,
about match ups. It is not always the better of the two teams that give
the best game because of those match ups.
JB's Got the answer: That is a
GREAT question. The problem is, there are so many players who have been
standouts that most people didn't have on the radar that it will be
difficult to give you just one name. I suppose I'd start with Chapman's
Debo Samuel. This 6-0, 180lbs two-way starter has managed 9 touchdowns
in his first two games, scoring from both sides of the ball. He's not a
true sleeper because we already knew about him and wrote about him last
Spring but his recruiting is picking up big time now.
Question: How far can Brookland-Cayce go this season?
JB's Got the Answer: The Bearcats are clearly an improved team, maybe the most improved in the Midlands area. Coach Rusty Charpia has done an admirable job of redirecting the focus and the attitude of the players within the program in just two years. As for this year's team, they've done some good things on the field. The new "pistol" offense really utilizes the talent that they have in their running back stables by spreading the defense out, enables them be successful running the football. As for how far I think they can go, I believe they can be a legitimate threat for Strom Thurmond and the region crown but it is going to depend on three things. First of all, they need to get better and more threatening at their wide receiver spots. Those two guys at the "X" and "Z" spots need to become go-to, playmaker type of players. If they can, you have a very potent offense. Secondly, they need to get better on the defensive side of the football, especially against the pass and giving up the big play. Finally, they need to remain healthy. This is a program in the early stage of construction - not rebuild, but full construction. They do not have the depth to afford injuries. If they can do those three things they can be a legit contender for the Region V crown and they could also be a pretty strong playoff team in the tough lower state field.
