Bulldogs look to break losing streak in district opener

“We have played good competition and I feel like our kids are battle tested. It only takes one win to get three weeks of bad tastes out of our mouths. If we can play well, I think we will be alright.”

The Vikings (4-1, 1-0), who can take a big step toward making the playoffs with a win over Crestview, have Grant’s attention — especially on defense.

“They play extremely hard,” he said. “They get 11 hats to the ball and they fly around. They are very disciplined.

“They’ve got the one kid, No. 4 (John Marvin), he’s committed to Georgia Tech, and he does a great job of filling his alley from the safety position. They are very well coached and they do what they are supposed to.”

The Viking offense reminds Grant a lot of Catholic the way it throws the ball around the field with quarterback Blake James.

“They like to spread the ball out there and use a bunch of different receivers and run a lot of screens,” he said. They are going try to get numbers out there and they are going to put the ball in their quarterback’s hands and let him make some plays. And he has made a bunch of plays for them. He does a good job of extending plays and finding open receivers downfield for big plays.”

Things might be looking up on the injury front for the Bulldogs.
