Baker host Sneads for Homecoming

“They’ve got a couple of backs that are big, physical backs and they’ve got a quarterback that is very athletic,” Brunson said. “And they run some option off of their Wing-T set, which, I think, is a good deal. We are going to have our hands full containing them.

“I think we can be physical up front and keep doing what we’ve been doing. I think our team, although we’ve lost a couple of close ones, has gotten better each week. I think we are still improving.”

Brunson said the key to stopping Sneads is for the Gators to read their keys and be disciplined in defending the run lanes.

 “We’ve got to be disciplined,” he said. “It’s kind of like defending the option, you have to have your eyes in the right spot and make sure you are covering the right thing.”

Brunson isn’t concerned about the distractions often associated with Homecoming.

“Here, it’s not that big of a deal,” Brunson said. “Our guys are mature and they go out and practice and prepare because they want to win a football game.

“They understand that this week a lot of people are coming to town to see them play that won’t get to see them play any other time. We beat a pretty good Bozeman team at Homecoming last year so I’m not going to worry about their focus.”
