The Red Dragons go into a matchup with the red hot Sentinels knowing that this game is a must win for them to keep any hopes of making it into the playoffs. Coach Davis was asked how his team was feeling this week, "we are ready for a battle, these guys are good and we know what we have to do to beat them." We hope Coach Davis has that answer because of late no one seems to be able to figure out how to slow down the Sentinels.
Bright spot and one of the newest Red Dragons running back DJ Scott again looks to be poised to get the bulk of the load today. The challenge was set to the offensive line this week to continue to create holes for Scott but the biggest emphasis was protecting Savoy. "Keeping Savoy comfortable in the pocket and allowing him to take the game as it comes to him is when he is at his best." That may be true but the formula has not been the most consistent and for the Red Dragons to get the victory over the Sentinels, Savoy and Scott will both need to play out of their minds.
After watching a bit of practice that we could, some players to look out for being involved to try and make an impact on the Red Dragons offense are TE. Henderson and the McIntosh. Even with McClure back in the lineup and looking to be healthy Henderson has made a big impressive splash and look for Savoy and the Red Dragons offense to continue to look for him to come up big in key moments.
The main key to victory comes down to the Red Dragons defense, Stone and Burge are the protectors of the secondary on the back end but also when it comes to setting the tone for how the game will go with how hard they hit. If they can cause an early turnover to get momentum on their side, this defense will ride that wave all the way through the 4th and hope the offense can make plays and limit the turnovers themselves. "With the bend but don't break defense we play, having to rely on turnovers becomes pivotal in how you win games and also what gets you beat and thus far we just haven't creating enough."
