The Alto Yellowjackets travel to Centerville to take on the Tigers this Friday at 7:00 p.m.  The Jackets fell in the district opener to Grapeland 50-28 while Centerville was “upset” (?) by Leon 44-14. Best I can tell Alto and Centerville have played a total of 10 times with Alto leading the series 6-4. The last meeting was in 2016 in the bi-district playoffs with Centerville winning 49-28. Alto put up a season-high 28 points against a tough Grapeland team but is still looking for that first W.

It’s 2020.....like Bizarro world. Covid pandemic, HS baseball cancelled, no track season, son and nephews’ prom and senior activities cancelled, masks, football cancellations, lost my grandmother and wife’s grandmother, my teams at every level HS, college, pro losing, etc etc....but in church this morning I gleaned some perspective. Lots to be thankful for and not the end of the world. Lol We press on and continue to work hard to improve each week.  These young guys are gaining valuable experience and I am proud of each one of them for the work they have and continue to put in. Their time is coming.

Who gets that first district win?

On a positive side note: Alto had a groundbreaking ceremony last Friday for the new high school!  Construction has started on a $10.5 million high school, coliseum, and elementary gym following the two tornadoes that ripped through our town in April 2019. Excited to see the finished product! Move-in date: August 2021.

Alto defense is gonna have to tackle and make some stops. Also need to open up their offense and utilize what speed they have which is not much.  Their offense is very slow paced and one dimensional.  Picking Centerville

We can win with what little speed we have. We are built to grind out clock and minimize opponents drives.  But you have to complete passes and execute to keep the chains moving. Gotta spread the ball around more imo to keep the defenses honest. There are a few more kids who can make plays that should prolly see the ball more than they have so far. We weren’t able to execute in the passing game when we needed to most last week and it cost us going down 20-0 after 1 quarter and 3 seconds elapsed. Very hard to overcome. Missed tackles also killed us last week. Several times we let guys get free and that’s nobody’s fault but ours. I will say that our boys never gave up no matter what the score was. Takes a special breed to keep pushing like that, so that’s def a plus.

The loser of this game will be hard pressed to make the playoffs. I think Alto gets it going after gutting it out against Grapeland after falling 20-0 in the 1st qtr essentially. Give me Alto in the mild upset.

PREP FOOTBALL PREVIEW: 

  • Oct 7, 2020

Alto Yellowjackets (0-5, 0-1) at Centerville Tigers( 4-2, 0-1)

7:00 p.m. Friday at Tiger Stadium in Centerville

Last Week: Grapeland 50, Alto 28; Leon 44, Centerville 14

Next Week: Alto vs. Leon; Centerville at Groveton

Game Analysis — The 'Jackets and the Tigers both know they need a win this week, after each dropped its district lid lifter last week … The Tigers had a four-game winning streak snapped last week … Offensively, Alto had its best night of the year a week ago and will be looking to build on that.
