SEB hunting Tigers

    BROOKLET — Coming off a tough loss to Richmond Hill, the Southeast Bulloch Yellow Jackets will look to
rebound as they take on their second consecutive AAAAAA opponent when face Bradwell Institute tonight in Hinesville.
    The Tigers (1-0) are coming off a big win over their cross-town rival Liberty County and boast an offense that is similar in nature to the Yellow Jackets’.
    “They run a power game, but they do it out of a spread formation,” said SEB (0-1) Interim Head Coach
Steve Pennington. “Therefore, they’re not so one-dimensional.”
    The key to Bradwell’s offense is running back Kevin Harris. The six-foot, 205 pound junior is “the total package,” Pennington said, being able to run inside and out as well as catching the ball out of the backfield.
    “It’s going to take more than one guy to bring him down,” he said of Harris, who rushed for 85 yards and a touchdown last week.
    Defensively, meanwhile, the Tigers boast a stout defensive line anchored by two ends that Pennington said may be the best they see all season. They’re aggressive, quick and try to anticipate the snap count to beat the offensive line off the ball.
    For the Yellow Jackets, Pennington said it will be vital to their success to be able to control the line of scrimmage. Each lineman will have to win his individual battle, but also work together as a unit and execute his assignment, to be able to move the ball.
    Defensively, SEB will need to improve their tackling as well as swarm to the ball. Pennington said the Yellow Jackets have made strides in that area this week in practice and those improvements will need to show on the field tonight.
    And as for playing their another AAAAAA opponent?
    “We’re looking forward to the opportunity,” Pennington said. “It’s the second game on our schedule and another step on our journey. “
    Kickoff is set for 7:30 in Hinesville.
