Calvary looks to turn the tables on Parkway in the opener. Last year the Cavaliers started the season with a 55-13 loss to the Panthers. Calvary went on to win a state championship, while Parkway lost in it's state championship game.
Both coaches have a lot of respect for the other program.
"A great opponent, went to the state championship last year. It didn't end up the way they wanted it to, but that doesn't take away from the fact they were a great football team. Coach Feaster has come in and built that program, I think it's one of the top programs in the state now. They do a great job in all three areas, offense, defense, and special teams. We're going to have to have one of our best efforts just to have a chance."
"The athletes are there and he know's what he's doing. If you followed him and what he's done in his career, he's put up points anywhere he's gone. David is more than capable of taking a quarterback, whether they're a great quarterback like Brandon or the one that he has here or probably, his freshman will score a lot of points this year. David does a great job of calling plays."
"Some years you start off with someone that's terrible. You know you're going to beat them, and you try to keep your kids from being focused on somebody down the road. That's not a problem this year. this year we knew going in. We've heard all about Calvary's great athletes and how many of their guys have been recruited by colleges. How many have committed and so forth. We've been hearing all of that and how high they're ranked and so forth. Our kids were aware from the start that this would be the game we'd have to be ready for."
"Defensively we feel like we've gotten better and this is going to be a great test for us. We feel like we've got enough speed in the secondary to have a chance. They have so many athletes all over the field. You can't just say we're going to stop the run with this guy, even though he's a great running back. You can't just say we're going to stop the pass with this receiver or that receiver, they have so many of them."
