The football team will play 9-1 Denton Guyer in a bi-district playoff game on Friday at the Children’s Health Center Stadium in Prosper at 7:30 p.m.

“We really have to study our opponent,” nose guard Eisaiah Jeffries said. “Guyer is good, so we have to take a good look at ourselves and other games to see how well we can do and what we can do differently.”

Head coach Brian Brazil is confident in the team’s plays and work in practice, especially after finishing the regular season with a win against Irving  56-21. Despite his confidence, Jeffries said the team remains persistent in practice due to the challenges Denton Guyer presents. 

“Last game overall as a team we played really well,” Jeffries said.  “It wasn’t as challenging as Guyer, but everyone went in with the right mindset everyone played to the best of their abilities as long as they could. It was a game that everyone can play, so we could show what we could do and a lot of people showed off their talent.

Learning from past mistakes from games earlier on in the year has led to focusing on playing offensively without getting tense because of their opponents’ skill level. 

“We are using the formula we have been using in the past few weeks,” Brazil said.“Be aggressive and play loose.”

Despite going 8-2 and finishing in 2nd in district 6-6A, the team is preparing for Guyer to be a tough match, and is hoping to learn from past mistakes and spend more time on the field. 

“Coaches are going through everything, keeping us on our [toes], being on us for being focused, not going into the game thinking everything is going to be easy,” Jeffries. “This week we are watching a lot of film, we’ve been practicing on the field more, a lot of stuff like that making sure the structure is right.” 

Guyer’s only loss this season came to undefeated Southlake Carroll on Oct. 4. Despite Guyer’s success, though, Brazil said he is confident his team will be competitive.

“We are not worried,” Brazil said. “We know Guyer is an outstanding team but we are as well. We just need to go and lay our game and let the outcome be determined by the players on the field. We are ready to play.”
