“Their defense is really, really good,” Bryant said. “They get after it. They’re a lot like us. They’re not real big, but they’re really athletic and all of them run real well.

“They only gave up one touchdown to a very good Eastern Alamance team, and that really got our attention.”

The Warriors average 32.7 points per game with their spread offense. Kamone Best rushed for 200 yards on 20 carries and had a 72-yard touchdown run last week against Eastern Alamance.

“They’re a really good offensive team,” Bryant said. “We’re going to have to play really well on both sides of the ball to beat them.”
