Mortimer Jordan was idle
FLASH NOTES: Homecoming is part of the agenda this week, along with a chance to face the best team in the region. Mortimer Jordan is the defending Region 6 champion and has outscored regional opponents 106-27. The games have been controlled by the Blue Devils, 31-10 over Corner, 41-14 over Springville and 34-3 against Fairview.
West Point used 316 rushing yards by Hunter Persall to turn back Fairview last week to go 3-1 in the region standings. The Warriors are run first, pass second.
Mortimer Jordan will be trying to find Persall throughout the field as he has been picking up plenty of strength for gaining 100 yards in the fourth quarter in his last two assignments.
The offensive line factors in to his success as well as his ability to find his holes and show his burst of speed.
West Point is trying to hang in the top two positions of Region 6, hoping to avoid a first round trip into the state playoffs in the Huntsville or Florence area.
