BAKER — After three weeks pounding on each other, Baker School’s football team gets to hit someone else Thursday night.

The Gators will be at Chipley for the 6 p.m. spring game.

Baker coach Matt Brunson is quick to praise the home team.

"Chipley's got a very good program," he said. "They played for it all two years ago and were the state runner up. Coach Chip Harris is in there now and he's definitely got his fingerprint on that team.

"They are physical and they've got a big running back in Kobe McCrary, who is a very good — I'd almost say great — high school football player. We will have our hands full containing him."

Varsity backups will play the first quarter, followed by junior varsities in the second quarter and varsity starters in the second half, Brunson said.

The game is big for quarterbacks Jon Beck and Ben Crowson as they replace Adam Crowson, who is graduating.
