MOUNT VERNON — Most coaching staffs break the high school football season down into 10 weekly tests. So far through six weeks, the Mount Vernon football team is faring well, passing five of those six tests with flying colors.
The tests have been getting progressively tougher and this Friday will continue the trend. The Yellow Jackets travel to Sunbury to take on the always tough Big Walnut Eagles at 7:30 p.m.
“They are a solid football team. They’re just really good,” said Mount Vernon coach Anthony Naples. “Their defense has some big guys up front and they’ve got some speed mixed in there. They’ve got the strength to hold you up and the rest of the guys will run to the football as fast as possible. We’ve got to take care of those situations as best as possible.”
Both teams enter Friday’s contest on winning streaks. The Jackets (5-1 overall, 3-0 Ohio Capital Conference) have won three straight, while Big Walnut (4-2, 2-1) has won two in a row.
