THOMASVILLE -- Tonight, the Brookwood Warriors (1-3) and Westwood Wildcats (2-2) will not be getting their final game plans together. They'll actually be game-planning on the field as a rare Thursday night game pits the two teams against each other in Camilla.
Both teams are looking for much-needed victories after embarrassing losses last week. The Warriors were humbled in Albany by Deerfield-Windsor 54-0, while the Wildcats fell victim to Flint River Academy 33-0.
Brookwood knocked off Westwood a year ago 16-13, as the Wildcats stumbled to a 2-8-1 record. But Warriors' head coach Shane Boggs is not discounting tonight's opponent.
"We don't have a game this year on our schedule where there's no sure thing. We just don't have it," said Boggs.
Boggs is very impressed with the Wildcats' defense. In Westwood's two victories over Fullington Academy and David Emanuel Academy, the Wildcats allowed just 19 points total.
"They've improved every week," Boggs said. "They've played great people, so scores aren't always going to indicate that. They've held some very good people to modest scores."
Brookwood will be aided on offense by the return of starting quarterback Rann Day. Day missed last week's game because of a sprained right ankle. The senior should give the Warriors a much-needed lift with his experience.
Offensively, Westwood runs the split-veer offense, in which it mostly relies on the dive and quarterback play, led by quarterback Jaimie Shira.
"They've got a very talented guy playing quarterback. Jamie's a good player," added Boggs.
While Westwood is a familiar foe for Brookwood, so is its head coach, Charlie Greene. Greene once served as an assistant for the Warriors.
"He's a good coach," Boggs said.
"He gets a ton out of them. Last year, I really didn't think they were incredibly talented. They ended up beating people that maybe they shouldn't have beat."
