HILLDALE — “But I think we’re at a place defensively where I feel like we’ll keep it a low scoring game just because we’ve been playing well. If we’re wrong, well, we’ve just got to go match them.
Outside linebacker Jamaul Cullom, whose job will be to force the action inside, has seen the defense be resilient throughout the year, including injuries here and there.
“We’ve lost some people and you know, every week we’ve come out here and prepared like we needed to, studied film like we’ve needed to and performed like we needed to,” he said. “I think we’ll be up to the task.”
In case they aren’t, his work at running back himself will prove critical.
“If we have to I think we could score some points but I’d rather just go out there and do our job defensively and let that dictate things,” he said.
Should Hilldale prevail, they could get a third home playoff game if Madill defeats Blanchard tonight. By winning, Blanchard would host the Hornets.
