Shane Boggs wants a pick your poison kind of offense.
And when Southwest Georgia Academy started to stack the box Friday night, his Brookwood Warriors finally showed the ability to make the opponent pay in the passing game.
That improvement could be the key for the Warriors as they head into the remainder of the GISA Region 3-AA slate including Friday’s trip to Terrell Academy.
“I don’t know if we’re balanced yet, but we’re getting closer,” Boggs said. “In that game, when we completed that first vertical route it back their safety up. Which made the run game more manageable.”
In the 35-34 win against SGA, Brookwood quarterback Cale Deese completed 9 of 13 passes for 158 yards, including that 41-yard strike to Peyton Latmore on the game’s opening possession. That performance, though, began earlier in the week. Throughout practice, Deese, and the Warriors passing game, was showing signs of life.
“I thought we practiced really well,” Boggs said. “It was the first week from a Monday through a Thursday, just evaluating Monday through Thursday performance in the passing game, it was the first week where we felt like we were going to throw it with high efficiency this game.”
