Gators go for perfect regular season

"We are just going to tweak our game a little bit," he said. "Our guys contained some very good players last Friday night at Northview."

South Walton runs a base 4-3 defense and will move into a five-man front. Brunson said the Seahawks play with good pad level and are tough up front.

Once again, the Gators will rely on senior D.J. Thomas to spark that running game. Thomas enters Friday's game with South Walton with 1,629 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns.

"We are going to do what we can to knock some holes in there and do the things that have helped us be successful this year," Brunson said. "We are going to take pride and try to be physical and if we get some guys open down the field we will definitely try a shot going play action pass. But we've got to get our running game going.

"We are going to have our hands full containing those guys. I think we've got to be kind of bend but don't break because it definitely gets tougher for the offense (because it doesn't have as much room to work) as the field gets shorter."

Brunson would like nothing more than for the Gators to finish off the perfect regular season.

"Perfect season don't come along very often," he said. "I've been a head coach 17 years and I've had one (2002 at Crestview), and I've been a part of some pretty good football teams.
