Gators host Freeport in district opener

Published: Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 05:37 PM.

Freeport (2-3, 0-0) won last year’s game 17-14 on a field goal in overtime and Brunson is expecting another classic between the Bulldogs and Gators.

“Both (Freeport) coach (Jim) Anderson and myself, we are not going to change a whole lot because we do what our kids can do and we do what we believe in,” Brunson said. “I think you can take a lot from last year’s game and I think it will be a war again.

“We have to contain their quarterback. Gabe Moore cannot get on the edge and gain yards with his feet. We’ve got to force him into passing situations and make him throw it because when he breaks contain is when he is the most dangerous.”

Brunson said he hopes that the Gators will be able to utilize some lessons they learned against Bozeman as they try to shut down the Freeport attack.

With the Gator offensive line blocking well and the running attack hitting on all cylinders Brunson probably won’t try to fix something that isn’t broken, but that doesn’t mean the two coaches won’t pull out all of the stops to win.

“Jim Anderson will do a great job and he’ll have a few tricks up his sleeve and we will have a few of our own,” Brunson said. “We will roll the dice and think the game will come down to the same things as last year’s game of who makes the plays.”

With only three district games, Brunson knows how important it is to open district play with a win and he is expecting another classic battle between the Gators and Bulldogs.
