When confusion becomes a weapon, a good team becomes a great one.

No, it goes much deeper than that.

With three weeks remaining, the task is simple enough – lean on the dominant defense and just win. 

Sounds easy enough, right?

By this point, it feels like a broken record. 

It’s a smooth sounding record though, with crisp high notes and bone-crushing tackles, one that is catching the ears of the state’s elite.

Ignore last week’s box score for a moment. 

Yes, it’s a thing of beauty and deserves its rightful place in the Greene County High School trophy case, but it’s not the entire story.
