CULVER â€” John Glenn will get a different look on defense as the team takes on Culver Military Academy on the road this week. But rather than feeling stressed about it, the Falcons are excited.
â€śWe think theyâ€™re going to try to throw the ball 25 to 40 times, and weâ€™ve not experienced that yet this year,â€ť said Glenn head coach Dave Sharpe. â€śWeâ€™ve been working like crazy with our defensive secondary and our linebackers with our pass coverages. Itâ€™s going to be a fun game.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” The focus was on focus a week ago and the Plymouth Rockies responded with a win over Elkhart Memorial, but with Concord looming a week away, Plymouth needs look no further than an embarrasing loss a year ago to know that Wawasee is this weekâ€™s opponent.
Confidence is high for the Rockies based on an explosive offense that can score a lot of points teamed with a defense that has been inspired two weeks in a row.
